Migrants storm fence to get into Spanish enclave of Cueta


In a concerted assault around 400 migrants have scaled a perimeter fence to gain entry into the Spanish North African enclave of Ceuta from Morocco.
Two guards were injured as the migrants, mostly from sub-Saharan Africa, stormed the fencing which is constructed of barbed wire and at least 6m (20ft) high.
Those who managed to get over were taken to an immigration detention centre, but it is thought around the same number of people were unsuccessful.
Some media outlets report the incident is the biggest to take place on the border in more than 10 years.
Spain’s Interior Minister, Juan Ignacio Zoido, said a number of the migrants had not been located after getting through the fence.
Spain has two territories which border Morocco, Cueta and Melilla.
