The “all-inclusive offer” is a deal put to migrants by people smugglers to include “a flight to Casablanca, pick-up from the airport, accommodation in a private home and passage to Spain”. It costs €4,500 per person.

The article also reveals a new smuggling route via boat from Algeria to Spain has recently opened up.

Die Welt (translated):

The Libya deal had stopped the migration from Africa to Europe. But it was probably only a rest. The route has shifted. On a well-known route new smuggling networks are forming.

“It’s really unbelievable, so many refugee boats have not existed for a long time,” says Patou Sedrick angrily. “They leave from all parts of the Moroccan coast.” The 32-year-old man from Cameroon himself had come to Morocco years ago as a refugee through the Sahara.

But he did not travel on, but remained in the port city of Tangier and since then helps as a human rights activist the migrants from Africa. “There have to be hundreds of people reaching Spain every week,” says Sedrick. “Just recently, 600 people were rescued on a single day.”
