Migrant disguised as car seat nabbed in Spain
Melilla (Spain), Sep 25 (IANS/EFE) Authorities here detained an immigrant as he was trying to enter this autonomous Spanish city from Morocco camouflaged as an automobile seat, on which another occupant of the vehicle was sitting.
Two other people were riding inside the car - the driver and a companion - and the latter was sitting on the double bottom prepared to hide the immigrant, the Civil Guard said Monday in a communique.
When police began searching the car, they noticed movement under the seat cover that could be a hidden person.
The Civil Guard emphasized the "originality" of the camouflage.
The immigrant is a man of around 20 who said he comes from Guinea Conakry, and he has been turned over to judicial authorities.
The driver of the vehicle and his accomplice, two Moroccans in their early 20s, were also turned over to police.
So far this year, the Civil Guard in Melilla has detected 14 vehicles with double bottoms and people hidden inside them. A total of 22 people have been arrested.
