The Royal Moroccan Gendarmerie and the Spanish Guardia Civil stopped this Tuesday morning 800 sub-Saharan migrants from forcing their way into Ceuta. There are 300 of them who have managed to reach the border barrier of the Spanish enclave without crossing it, reports the Spanish news agency EFE.

The attempt took place around five o'clock in the morning in an area of 8.2 kilometers of land border between Ceuta and Morocco, according to sources from the Spanish government delegation reported by EFE.

According to the Italian website TGcom24, the Spanish authorities had been warned against the migrant’s attempt to force their way into the city a few days ago.

In May, 300 Sub-Saharana migrants tried to enter Melilla Tuesday morning. 100 of them managed to force their way across the 6-meters wire fence making it through to the city at around 5am.

Some of these migrants have thrown rocks at officials. «Three policemen were injured in clashes with the migrants, who kicked and threw rocks at the officers», Spain Interior Ministry said in a statement reported by AFP.
