The bodies of 13 people were found aboard a packed migrant boat near one of Spain's Canary Islands, the Interior Ministry said.

Coastal guards spotted the boat with 46 survivors, and it was escorted to Puerto de Arguineguin on the south of Gran Canaria Island, the ministry said. It said the boat had sailed from Guinea.

Every year thousands of Africans looking for a better life in Europe attempt treacherous journeys in overcrowded boats.
