After Ceuta, Melilla is also experiencing an influx of migrants. At around 3:45 a.m. (Moroccan time), around 300 Sub-Saharans tried to enter the city from the port of Béni N'Sar, El Faro de Melilla said.

A few hours earlier, the city's president, Edouardo de Castro announced that he had, in fact, «ordered the local police to prohibit vehicle access through Paseo del Dique Sur (south of the city, ed. ) to facilitate its control by the state security forces».

The intervention of Moroccan and Spanish public forces prevented about 200 people from climbing the fence, adds the same publication citing «sources at the government delegation». They are 85 men and 5 women, accoridng to the same sources.

El Faro de Melilla also indicates that the Government Delegation noted that three police officers were injured by stones thrown by the migrants. Following this operation, the government delegate, Sabrina Moh held a meeting with the heads of the security forces to examine the situation.

For the record, hundreds of Sub-Saharans were observed last night on the road between Tangier and Ceuta.
