Morocco – Spain: A hundred migrants attempt to swim to Sebta

A hundred people of Moroccan origin attempted to swim to Sebta on Saturday. A dozen of them managed to reach the Spanish enclave, while a mission was carried out by members of the Moroccan gendarmerie and civil guard, according to the EFE news agency. Of the ten migrants who managed to reach the enclave, eight were deported, while two minors were placed under guardianship, Spanish police sources said. 

According to the Spanish agency, the immigrants took advantage of last night’s thick fog to attempt to cross the breakwaters at the Tarajal border, which leads to the town of Sebta. Last week, five Moroccan nationals entered Sebta by sea, using a jet ski. They were eventually spotted by the Guardia Civil.
