>> More than 1,000 migrants stormed the border fence in North Africa Sunday. The migrants thought to be Sub-Saharan Africans forcefully tried to cross into Spain's North African enclave, Ceuta, from Morocco. The Spanish government say most were eventually turned back. Dozens of migrants did make it to the top of a six meter high barbed wire fence though, but they were soon lifted down by cranes.
Five Spanish and 15 Moroccan police were reported to be injured after migrants clashed with authorities. The Spanish government say only two migrants were taken to a Spanish hospital, the rest were returned to Morocco. Spain has two enclaves in Morocco often used as entry points to Europe by African migrants.
The country often immediately turns migrants back in such incidents. The practice has drawn criticism from human rights groups who argue that skipping the longer deportation process deprives migrants the opportunity to claim asylum.
