More Guardia Civil officers and money-laundering experts are required in south, says union
Spanish police have renewed their calls for reinforcements to tackle the escalating violence on the country’s southern coast after a nine-year-old boy was killed by a boat driven by a convicted drug smuggler and a group of Guardia Civil officers was attacked by a crowd armed with baseballs bats and broken bottles.
The boy died by a beach near the port of Algeciras on Monday afternoon after the boat he was in was hit by the other vessel. Police are treating the death as an accident. Witnesses have claimed the launch was being driven dangerously.
