Migrants protest as dozens died while crossing into Spanish enclave of Mellila

This comes after dozens died Friday while attempting to cross by force into the Spanish autonomous city of Melilla from Moroccan territory. The Spanish Attorney General’s Office announced on Tuesday the opening of an investigation into the incident.


“We went to the city of Nador and they beat us badly. They killed our friends and family. The Moroccan government said there were 23 dead, but we know there are more than 70, it’s inhumane. We call for no discrimination between migrants. ” Omar, a Sudanese migrant said at the demonstration.

At least 23 migrants died and 140 police officers were injured, according to Moroccan authorities, when some 2,000 migrants tried to cross the high wire fence separating Melilla from the northern Moroccan border town of Nador.

“We ask today to see the bodies and to identify them in order to inform their families in Sudan of what happened,”
