Picture:Cab drivers attack Nigerian prostitutes in Spain, blame them for drop in tourism

Prostitutes blamed for robbing and pick-pocketing British tourists in Magaluf, Spain, have been chased off the streets by angryprotesters.

Spanish taxi drivers led a late-night show of strength against the women by recording them with their mobile phones and chanting: “No prostitutes on the streets,” reports Daily Mail.

It is claimed that the women have come to Spain via organised crime in Nigeria, and they are blamed by local businesses for a drop in tourist trade.

The most recent figures for Mallorca as a whole showed a year-on-year fall of almost six per cent in the number of visitors to the island.

Some British expatriates and holidaymakers, who were filmed in another protest a few days ago, joined the new drive to rid Magaluf of the women.

One of the women picked up a block of wood as she was pursued by a large group of men yelling: “Get out, get out.”

The demonstrators also shouted at the women: “The tourists are not coming because of you.”

They said: “What happens if you go back to your own countries and rob people. They slit your throats, right?”

A man who picked the prostitutes up in a car was also confronted.

There were reports of pushing and shoving and some minor assaults, but no-one was seriously injured.

The new protest came after Alfonso Rodriguez Badal, the mayor of Calvia which includes Magaluf, urged the Spanish government to help the party resort tackle the problems posed by African street prostitutes in a letter made public on Wednesday.

He called for an urgent meeting with a central government spokesman for the Balearic Islands as he insisted more Civil Guards were needed to combat the criminal gangs controlling the women.
