Spain's Maritime Rescue Service says it has rescued another 109 people from the Mediterranean Sea as they tried to reach the country's southern coasts from North Africa.
The rescue service said a crew encountered one vessel in the western part of the Strait of Gibraltar on Monday with 52 migrants on board, while a second one carried 49.
A different rescue boat picked up eight people from a dinghy found further east.
The service reported on Sunday that 160 people were rescued from five boats.
The number of people reaching Europe by the so-called Western Mediterranean land and sea route to Spain has surpassed the number arriving to Italy by boat this year.
