Hundreds of migrants storm into Spain

Filed under: ,

More than a thousand African migrants have stormed a border fence in Spain's North African coastal enclave of Melilla, with many managing to scale the barrier and cross, Morocco's government has said. Dozens of others were beaten back by police on both sides of the frontier on Wednesday. The Moroccan government said 1,500 immigrants rushed through the fence at five different points, ignoring warnings to stop and hurling stones at security forces. At least 500 people made it across the border, shouting with joy as they dashed through the streets to an official accommodation centre. The centre now houses about 2,400 people, an official there said.
