A marine rescue worker and some of the 78 would-be immigrants are seen through the coastguard boat window. The cayuco was intercepted 80 miles away from the coast of Tenerife, in the Canary Islands, Spain, Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2007. Thousands of people try to reach Europe through Spain each year, an increasing number of them coming from Mauritania and Moroccan-controlled Western Sahara. Mauritania's Red Crescent says more than 1,000 people have died trying to reach Spain since the beginning of the year.
