A reported 1,000 African migrants armed with makeshift weapons tried to storm the Spanish enclave of Ceuta on Tuesday morning.

According to Ceuta’s Civil Guard Command, at least three Spanish officers and 10 Moroccans were injured as authorities managed to push back the “extremely violent” mob of African migrants brandishing sticks, hand-made spears, and sharp objects, some of whom were throwing stones at police.

The fresh attempt to enter European Union (EU) territory from Morocco came just a day after a policeman’s leg was broken as 300 sub-Saharan Africans stormed the Tarajal crossing, 187 of them succeeding in their quest to break into the Spanish enclave.
A Spanish government delegate in Ceuta, Nicolás Fernández Curucull, said the injuries occurred as a result of the migrants’ “violent behaviour” as they “overwhelmed the border agents”  — a statement slammed by Amnesty International as having the potential to “encourage hateful and xenophobic discourse”.
