It is with great sadness that we learn of the tragic boat accident off the coast of Mauritania that claimed the lives of many Gambians.

His Excellency, President Adama Barrow has earlier been briefed that the boat originated from Barra, North Bank Region, and fifty-two (52) Gambians lost their lives whiles eighty (80) others survived.

The Gambia government is working with the United Nations International Organization for Migration and will dispatch a delegation to Mauritania at the earliest possible time to investigate and gather more information on the accident.

President Barrow expresses heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and prays for the departed souls to Rest In Peace.
