Tarifa (Spain), Jul 27 (ANI): Migrants, mostly young men, landed on a beach near Spain's Tarifa and jumped in it as sunbathers looked on. They landed after crossing the Strait of Gibraltar which has become a key route for migrants. Overall, numbers of migrants reaching Europe are way down from the peak in 2015- 55,000 migrants have reached the continent's shores this year. But Spain has recently overtaken Italy as the preferred destination and seen 17,000 migrants arrive so far this year - twice the number at the same point in 2017, according to interior ministry figures.
