Hundreds of new boats carrying migrants reach Canary Islands

Hundreds of boats carrying at least 1,000 migrants have landed in the Canary Islands over the past week.
The Red Cross says the Spanish islands haven’t seen numbers like that since 2006.
Most of the people making the journey come from West Africa.
Al Jazeera’s Nicolas Haque has more from Senegal’s capital Dakar.

    This is a failure of ALL the African governments who don't invest in their people, shame on them. These young men should be flourishing in their lands, not risking their lives on a rickety boat, going to lands where the people are RACIST and hostile. Shame on Africa for not protecting and investing in your beautiful people👆🏾

    They need to be sent back as quick as they arrive. Africa is a huge country and the rest of the world cannot take them in.
