SPANISH POLICE have accused border officials in Algeria and Morocco of conspiring with a gang of people traffickers who smuggled hundred of Asians into Spain.
The Bangladesh-based network reportedly obtained fraudulent visas to Algeria through the country’s Indian consulate for at least 350 people.
Cops have identified alleged members of the ring and 11 suspects in Spain have been rounded up on human trafficking charges.
Once in Algeria, the migrants were taken to houses near the border with Morocco before they were taken by boat to southern Spain.
Police have reported that each person paid up to €20,000 for the trip.
