Morocco foils migrants’ attempt to storm into Spain’s Melilla


The Moroccan authorities foiled on Friday a mass attempt by over 400 Sub-Saharan migrants to storm into Spain’s North African exclave of Melilla, local authorities said.

Nine migrants sustained minor injuries and were rushed to Fnideq’s hospital, added the local authorities of M’diq-Fnideq in a statement published by the official news agency MAP.

About 90 others were arrested and handed to the security services, while search continues to arrest the rest, it added.

Spain’s two North African exclaves of Melilla and Ceuta are often used as entry points into Europe for African migrants.
