Migrants, refugees swim from Morocco to Spain’s Ceuta enclave

Migrants, refugees swim from Morocco to Spain’s Ceuta enclave

More than 100 people, including two families with children, swam overnight from Morocco to enter the neighbouring Spanish enclave of Ceuta on Monday, according to local authorities.

The migrants and refugees set off from beaches south of Ceuta and were detained when they entered the tiny Spanish territory, according to a spokesman for the Guardia Civil police force.

They were mostly young men, but children and women were also among the arrivals, said a spokesman for the Spanish government delegation in Ceuta.

Some used inflatable swimming rings while others used rubber dinghies, the spokesman told the AFP news agency.

  1. Spain has deployed troops after record numbers of migrants entered its north African enclave of Ceuta from Morocco.

    Some 8,000 people have reached Ceuta in two days, Spanish officials say.

    They say the migrants - who include about 1,500 minors - either swam around the border fences that jut out into the sea or walked across at low tide.

    Spain's Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez has vowed to restore order. Spain says it has already sent some 2,700 migrants back - but not the minors.

    Cancelling a trip to Paris, the prime minister travelled to Ceuta and Melilla to deal with the crisis, seen as the worst diplomatic spat with Morocco for 20 years. Morocco withdrew its ambassador, Karima Benyaich, for consultations after Spain's foreign minister told the envoy of her "disgust" at what had happened.
