Melilla: Hundreds of Illegals storming the border fence

Published on 25 Feb 2015

Sub-Saharan immigrants, who yesterday tried to cross into Spanish territory, shout "Spain, Spain" and "Freedom" from the top of a fence at the Spanish-Moroccan border in Melilla, a Spanish autonomous city in north Africa. Spanish officials said several hundred migrants tried to climb barbed-wire fences but were turned back by security forces from both sides.

Moroccan forces kept back more than 1,000 who made similar attempts on Thursday. Thousands of migrants seeking a better life in Europe are living illegally in Morocco, hoping they can enter Melilla or
Spain's other north African enclave.
