Over 1,000 migrants repelled from Morocco-Spain border

A group of illegal migrants wait at a temporary shelter in Melilla, on October 8, 2005Security forces drove back 1,000 African migrants who tried to scramble over a border fence from Morocco into the Spanish territory of Melilla on Saturday, officials said. “Anti-climbing mesh and the collaboration of the Moroccan forces with the (Spanish) civil guard managed to stop an attempt to cross by about a thousand migrants,” the Spanish government delegation in Melilla said in a statement. Moroccan forces saw off many of the migrants and those who managed to get past them to the fence failed to climb into Melilla partly due to the new type of mesh, it said. Melilla is one of two Spanish-held cities on the northern coast of Africa, along with Ceuta to the east.
