- They were found under a car compartment trying to flee to Spain as migrants
Three African migrants from Guinea are been kept at the Centre for Temporary Stay of Immigrants (CETI) in Spain, till authorities decide on their fate.
The three men were found inside a specially-built compartment under a car trying to sneak into Spain.
The men in their early 20’s were pulled out by border cops from their ingenious hiding places as the car in which they were hiding attempted to cross from Morocco into the North African Spanish territory of Melilla.

Video Footage and pictures released by the authorities show how the migrants hid in the custom-built compartments under the car and dashboard.
Police said the vehicle was stopped after an officer patrolling the border area saw a young man getting out and running back towards Morocco. This prompted a search by the cops who found the three migrants from Guinea in West Africa concealed inside and showing signs of hypothermia.
The driver, a 25-year-old Moroccan, was later apprehended and detained.
Border authorities indicate that the route is a popular one for people trying to get into the EU, as it is the only land crossing between Africa and a European country.
