‘Extremely violent, organized:’ 1,000 migrants storm Spanish enclave bordering Morocco

‘Extremely violent, organized:’ 1,000 migrants storm Spanish enclave bordering Morocco, by RT.

About 1,000 migrants have tried to force their way into the Spanish enclave of Ceuta bordering Morocco by storming a wired border fence. Local officials say dozens of security forces from both Spain and Morocco have been injured.

Crowds of migrants approached the 6-meter-high barbed wire border fence early Sunday and tried to break into Ceuta in several places. …

Migrants tried “to force open some of the doors in the external fence, using iron bars, wire cutters and large stones,” a statement by Ceuta government said, as cited by the local media. The refugees then assaulted Moroccan security forces as well as Spanish police (Guardia Civil). …

How high do the fences have to be? Given the demographic explosion happening in Africa, the pressures driving this kind of behavior are clearly going to increase.

Ceuta is alongside another Spanish enclave in Morocco, Melilla, one of the most common spots for African migrants trying to reach Europe.
