Two migrants from Cameroon have been arrested for allegedly killing up to 10 Nigerian migrants last month, police in Spain say.
According to a Sky News report, the victims were allegedly pushed overboard in stormy waters while on a boat from Morocco to Spain on 3 December.
A police spokesman said the pair were arrested after several of the 29 survivors on the boat claimed people had been pushed off the boat after a fight broke out over a prayer session.
One of the Nigerians, a pastor, had been praying that the boat would not sink, but the Cameroonians blamed the worsening weather on the pastor, according to the spokesman, who was speaking to Associated Press on condition of anonymity,
The pair then allegedly pushed the pastor and a group of other Nigerians who were praying with him overboard.
The survivors said they were not sure how many people were pushed off because the fight took place at night, police said.
The spokesman said officials were suspicious after noticing the survivors appeared afraid of the Cameroonians when they were brought ashore after the marine rescue service found the boat adrift off the coast of southeastern Spain on 5 December.
He said police also found 1,500 Euros (£1,150) on one of the two Cameroonians, which the survivors claimed had been stolen from the victims.
Police say there were around 50 people on the boat, but 10 others had died when they fell into the sea.
