España, Marruecos enfrentados luego que 8.000 migrantes llegan a Ceuta

May 19, 2021 - España desplegó tropas a Ceuta para patrullar la frontera con Marruecos luego que unos 8.000 migrantes, muchos del África Subsahariana, saltaron las vallas o nadaron hacia el interior del enclave español en el norte de África, en lo que el presidente del gobierno español Pedro Sánchez calificó como una crisis grave tanto para España como para Europa.

The sudden influx of migrants took place after Morocco loosened border controls amid a deepening diplomatic spat with Spain over the disputed territory of Western Sahara.

Ceuta, with a population of 80,000, is on the northern tip of Morocco across from Gibraltar. Along with another Spanish enclave, Melilla, it has long been a magnet for African migrants seeking a better life in Europe. Morocco has a claim on both, Reuters said.

Spanish Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska said 200 troops, plus 200 extra police were going to assist Ceuta’s normal 1,100-strong border force, according to a BBC report.
