Around 400 African migrants forced their way into the tiny Spanish enclave of Ceuta today, the biggest group in a decade to storm the walled city bordering Morocco in search of asylum.

The group – mainly men – forced their way through two entry points in the 20-feet barrier that surrounds the Spanish enclave.

Footage posted online by the El Faro de Ceuta newspaper showed dozens of migrants, including men without shoes and shirts, shouting ‘Spain’ in delight as they crossed into Ceuta.

A Spanish government spokesman said: ‘You have to go back to the early 2000s to see numbers like this.’

The Red Cross said it had treated 103 people for minor injuries (pictured) while 25 had been taken to hospital.

Spanish junior minister for security, Jose Antonio Nieto, will visit Ceuta today to investigate the incident.

Some 10,800 migrants have arrived in Spain in 2016, according to the International Organization for Migration.

Ceuta, along with Melilla, another Spanish territory in North Africa, have the European Union’s only land borders with Africa.

They are favoured entry points for African migrants seeking a better life in Europe, who get there by either climbing over the border fence or by swimming along the coast.

The objective for migrants entering Ceuta illegally is to reach a temporary Spanish residency rights centre where they can, in principle, request asylum.

In 2014 a group of 15 migrants drowned as they tried to swim to Ceuta from a beach in neighbouring Morocco.

At the time, rights groups and migrants said Spanish police tried to keep them from reaching the shore by firing rubber bullets and spraying them with tear gas.

In October a group of about 220 people managed to storm two entry points into Ceuta, injuring 35 migrants and three security officers.

  2. So military age males, by the physically fit hundreds, fleeing all responsibility, abandoning their families and insisting that complete strangers assume complete charge of providing complete substance, completely on the cuff.

    Of course, that’s what suckers are for. And not exploiting chumps is completely unforgivable.

  3. Anyone storming a birder should be shot in the head as suspected terrorists. Would probably stop this happening straight away.

    If you don’t want to be shot; don’t storm a border. End of.
