A would-be immigrant sits in a hospital tent in the port of Los Cristianos on the Canary island of Tenerife, Spain, Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2006 after 94 immigrants were intercepted at sea in their small boat. Spain on Tuesday renewed its appeal for the European Union to do more to halt a flood of illegal migration from Africa, saying the problem is one of the bloc's main challenges of the new century and Spain cannot handle it alone. More than 23,000 migrants have made dangerous ocean crossings from northwest Africa to Spain's Canary Islands so far this year, leading to the drowning of many and a near collapse of holding facilities on the islands.
