More than 50 border guards were injured when 1,100 African migrants stormed a Spanish border fence Sunday in an attempt to reach the European Union.
The migrants tried to reach Spain’s North African enclave of Ceuta by climbing a 20 ft-high fence. Just two migrants successfully managed to get across the border, but both were badly injured and needed hospital treatment.
Fifty Moroccan and five Spanish border guards were injured. Ten officers are in serious condition, according to Morocco’s interior ministry. One of them reportedly “lost an eye” during the clashes.
