Isabella Alexander has spent years researching and reporting on the effort by migrants to cross from Morocco to Spain, via land routes. Now, she has named 47 previously unidentified victims of a failed sea crossing in early February.
They call it 'The Crossing': African migrants scale razor-wire fences to reach Spanish enclaves in Morocco. But Spanish authorities are viciously pushing them back across the border without hearing their case for asylum.
