JULY and AUGUST: Boza, no Boza, deaths, disappeared and wounded

Many migrants continue to try to traverse the Mediterranean Sea or climb the fences in Ceuta and Melilla in their attempts to reach Europe. Several persons were wounded, died or disappeared during the months of July and August. Through collaboration between the Spanish surveillance and rescue service Salvamento Maritimo and the Moroccan Marine, numerous boats are detected by the Spanish services and taken by the Moroccan Marine, often it is not clear whether the boat was indeed still in Moroccan territorial waters or whether they were refouled to Moroccan waters from the Spanish side.
Here is a map of Spanish territorial waters: https://twitter.com/salvamentogob/status/620642581823815680?s=02

Update on the situation on July 1, 2015
https://beatingborders.wordpress.com/2015/07/04/des-dangers-des-frontieres-update-1072015/#more-1390
On 1st July 2015, once again more than 200 police and military officers were deployed in the district of Boukhalef, determined to evacuate all ‘blacks’. The security forces surrounded the neighbourhood, and went from door to door to dislodge anyone who resembled a ‘Subsaharan’, under the pretext to evict squatters.
