Woman Tries to Smuggle Young Boy in Suitcase



Immigration laws in the Spanish territories of Ceuta and Melilla have become so strict that thousands of African migrants are forced to become creative in entering the territories.

Take for example this young woman, who tried to smuggle a young boy…. inside a suitcase.

According to the Spanish newspaper El Pais, a 19 year old woman tried to smuggle an eight year old boy from Ivory Coast by putting him in a suitcase. The boy was discovered when the suitcase went through an X-ray scanner. When the police opened the bag, they found the boy in a “terrible state.”

The boy is not related to the woman, but she was paid by his father to get him in. The father is from the Canary Islands, and also attempted to enter Ceuta a few hours later.
