Ceuta: Tear gas used by Spanish police as migrants pushed back from Spanish enclave to Morocco

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Ceuta: Tear gas used by Spanish police as migrants pushed back from Spanish enclave to Morocco” – below is their description.

Migrants continue to attempt to cross into Ceuta from Morocco by sea, as thousands are being sent back through the border gates.

Spanish authorities were also filmed using tear gas as a group of migrants gathered near the border with Morocco.

At least 4,800 Moroccans adults were returned to Morocco, in line with a decades-old agreement between the two countries to expel all those who swim across the border.

Exhausted by either scaling a double-wide border fence or risking their lives by swimming around a breakwater to reach a beach on the European side, many migrants spent the night in overcrowded warehouses under the gaze of Spanish police.

In This Story: Ceuta

Ceuta is a Spanish autonomous city on the north coast of Africa. Bordered by Morocco, it lies along the boundary between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.

It was part of the province of Cádiz until 14 March 1995. On that date, Statutes of Autonomy were passed for both Ceuta and Melilla.

Ceuta, like Melilla and the Canary Islands, was classified as a free port before Spain joined the European Union. Its population consists of Christians, Muslims, and small minorities of Sephardic Jews and ethnic Sindhis from modern-day Pakistan.

Spanish is the official language. Darija Arabic is also spoken by 40–50% of the population.
