(ANSAmed) - TUNIS, MARCH 15 - Diplomatic tensions are high between Morocco and Spain after a shipwreck last December off Lanzarote. The boat was carrying Moroccan would-be immigrants trying to reach Spain illegally. Seven of them died. Morocco's foreign minister summoned the Spanish ambassador after a video posted on the internet showed that the boat sunk after a collision with a Civil Guard boat. Morocco also officially asked Spain to access the documents on the incident.(ANSAmed).
