100 Migrants Enter Spanish City in North Africa

MELILLA, Spain – About 100 sub-Saharan migrants out of a group of 500 managed to break into the Spanish city of Melilla after another massive assault on the wall along the border with Morocco.

The onslaught occurred around 7:50 a.m., sources in the Spanish central government delegation in Melilla told Efe.

Members of the Spanish Civil Guard, which is responsible for border security, described the migrants’ attitude as “very violent” and said they used stones and clubs.

The violence of the migrants, who divided into two groups, made it necessary for the Civil Guard unit to aid Moroccan forces trying to prevent the border crossing.

This is the second massive attempt of undocumented sub-Saharans to enter Melilla in just one week, since last Monday when another 150 successfully broke into the city.

Melilla, like Ceuta, another Spanish city on the Mediterranean coast bordering Morocco, has lived for months under extreme migratory pressure that keeps security forces on constant alert.

In Ceuta on Feb. 6, an attempted break-in left 15 people drowned who separated from a group of 250 and tried to swim along the coast into Spanish territory.
