Morocco’s navy rescued more than 60 migrants from sub-Saharan Africa as their boat got into difficulties in the Atlantic off Tarfaya,  

On August 11, 67 migrants attempting to reach Europe were intercepted by a Moroccan Royal Navy unit 100 kilometres north of the Moroccan town of Tarfaya, as the boat carrying migrants was facing difficulty, according to Saudi-backed news outlet Al Arabiya.

Among those rescued were a woman and three children. They were given first aid before being taken to the port of Laayoune in the disputed Western Sahara for processing.
