‘Ennahar Online’ reports of a radio interview with a senior Algerian official. He said that many parents exploit the goodwill of European countries and send their children as illegal immigrants where they rely on the support of different organisations. He also said that parents, when contacted by these organisations, refuse to take the children back and cut communications. Mr. Benatallah refused to estimate how many children he was talking about but overall 1,400 illegal Algerians were deported from Spain in 2010.
