1284 illegal immigrants arrested at Maghnia since Janary

Liberte gives some idea of the scale of illegal immigration to Algeria - really, mainly, via Algeria to Europe, although some stay - in reporting that 1284 "clandestins" from 21 countries have been arrested just at Maghnia, on the Moroccan border, since the start of the year. Most were African, although, bizarrely, they also included Russians, Uzbeks, and Syrians. Stories on this issue seem to crop up every month or so.
