About 400 hundred illegal immigrants from Africa were stopped from crossing the Spanish border fence in Melilla. The immigrants pelted the Moroccan guards with stones before they began their forceful entrance into Spain by climbing the border fence. But they were repelled by the Spanish Guardia officers after the checkpoint was closed.
Some of the immigrants who succeeded in climbing the border fence remained there for about one and a half hour in the hopes they’ll be able to enter Spain. But they finally gave up to the forces of law and order in Morocco after realising it would be impossible to get into Spain at that moment.
No casualties were reported about the incident that took place in the early hours of Sunday morning, the 1st of February 2015.
