    (ANSAmed) - MADRID, FEBRUARY 21 - Over 300 people protested in the Spanish enclave of Ceuta against the government of Premier Mariano Rajoy, accused of treating migrants ''like suitcases''. Demonstrators also denounced incidents on February 6, when 15 migrants drowned and others were chased away by the Guardia Civil as roughly 1,400 people tried to get into the enclave. Guardia civil officers used anti-riot gear including rubber bullets against the immigrants.

    Meanwhile, the interior ministers of Spain and Morocco, Jorge Fernandez Diaz and Mohamed Hassad, agreed to boost cooperation between the two countries to confront the immigration emergency in the enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla in Morocco. (ANSAmed).
