Espanha e Marrocos ezedam relações com a passagem de migrantes para o enclave

May 19, 2021 - Espanha deslocou tropas para Ceuta a fim de patrulhar a fronteira com
Marrocos, depois de 8.000 imigrantes, muitos da África Subsaariana,
saltarem as vedações ou nadarem até ao enclave do Norte de África, naquilo a que o Primeiro ministro Pedro Sanchez chamou uma crise grave para Espanha e para a 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.
