24 February, 13:51

    (ANSAmed) - MADRID, FEBRUARY 24 - Some 100 migrants from sub-Sahara were able to get inside the Spanish enclave of Melilla after storming the border with Morocco at dawn on Monday. An estimated 500 migrants attempted to get in.

    According to sources with authorities in Melilla, the assault on the double protection barrier at the border was ''very violent'' with many of the immigrants throwing stones and using batons against Moroccan security forces who had to seek the help of the Spanish civil guards. It is still unknown how many were injured.

    The area concerned was in the border zone between La Vaguarda Linares and the river Nano.

    Last Monday, 150 other migrants were able to get inside the Spanish enclave after storming the barrier. (ANSAmed)
