MADRID — Spanish police say they have recovered the bodies of two Moroccans from a boat that reached Spain’s coast after crossing the Mediterranean Sea with migrants and a hashish shipment.

Police said Sunday that they found the bodies along with two other people who were suffering from hypothermia on Saturday after they were alerted that a rubber boat had reached a beach near Malaga. Police believe one of the dead could be a minor.

Police also found six kilograms of hash near the boat. They suspect that the drugs belonged to boat’s owner and the pilot, who police are looking for along with three others.

Police have located eight more Moroccan men from a total of 15 people they believe to have been on board.
