89 migrants found dead at sea of Mauritania

Mauritanian coast guards recovered the bodies of 89 illegal migrants near N'Diago, southwestern Mauritania, reported Xinhua, quoting local media on Thursday.

The migrants were aboard a large traditional fishing boat that stranded off the Atlantic Ocean, four kilometers from the town of N'Diago, the Mauritanian News Agency reported.

Nine people, including a five-year-old girl, were rescued by the Mauritanian coast guard, the report said.

The boat, which left the Senegalese-Gambia border six days ago towards Europe, had 170 migrants on board, the report quoted survivors as saying.
