MORE THAN 200 African Migrants have entered Spain after storming over a double fence between Morocco and Melilla.
In total, 209 people reportedly forced their way over the two six-metre (20 feet) high double fences between Morocco and the Spanish enclave.
Several people were reportedly injured during the violent barrage, including four of the migrants and a Guardia Civil officer.
Footage captured by journalist Helena Maleno Garzon shows a large group of migrants running through the streets of the city.

Migrants often use Melilla and Cueta , nearly 400 kilometres away, as access points into Europe as they are the only two land borders between Africa and the European Union.
A record number of migrants reached Spain in 2017, with almost 22,900 people accessing the country from Africa according to EU border agency Frontex.
