The Latest: Police boat miles from Cyprus picks up 14 at sea

LISBON, Portugal – The Latest on mass migration to Europe (all times local):

7:30 p.m.

Cyprus authorities say a police vessel has rescued 14 people believed to be migrants in waters approximately 53 kilometers (33 miles) off the island nation's southeastern tip.

The Cyprus Joint Rescue Coordination Center said it received an emergency call Sunday afternoon from a merchant ship that had spotted a small boat off Cape Greco.

The police vessel brought aboard all the passengers, who included a pregnant woman and three children, and took them to the port of Larnaca.

Authorities didn't reveal the nationalities of the rescued passengers or where their boat set sail from.

Cyprus lies around 170 kilometers (100 miles) west of Syria's coast and 230 kilometers (140 miles) west of Lebanon.

Spanish authorities say 52 migrants have climbed a guarded fence to gain entry into Spain's North African enclave of Melilla from Morocco.

An official with the Spanish Interior Ministry in Melilla says four police officer and one migrant sustained light injuries as the group scaled the high fence around dawn Sunday.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity, in line with government rules.

Spain's proximity to North Africa has made it a target for migrants trying to reach the European Union. The migrants try to get in either by land via Spain's two North African enclaves or by crossing the Mediterranean Sea in small boats.

Spain became the leading entry point to Europe last year, with some 60,000 migrants arriving irregularly, almost all of them by sea.
