Seven African migrants, some of whom “could be minors,” were found dead Monday as they tried to reach Lanzarote in Spain’s Canary Islands, authorities said.

Authorities found an inflatable boat off a beach with five bodies inside. Two migrants died after they got out while two others are in hospital in a “very serious” state, a spokesman for the Guardia Civil police force told AFP, though he did not know what the cause of death was.
