The North Atlantic sea passage from Senegal to the Canary Islands – a journey of about 1,000 miles – is one of the world’s most dangerous migration routes.
In August, a wooden fishing boat was found adrift off the Canary Islands with 38 people on board. It had set off from Senegal more than a month earlier carrying 101 people.
One of the survivors, Adama Sarr, was on board with his brother and two cousins. Out of this four, only Adama came home.
This is his account of the tragedy on board the boat.
