A Royal Navy coastguard assisted on Monday morning a boat in trouble in the west of the Northern city of Tangier that was carrying 38 Moroccan would-be illegal immigrants and a dead body, a military source said.

The boat, which was put to sea on October 8, 2018, lost its way following an engine failure, the source added.
