DW News published this video item, entitled “Clashes between migrants and security forces at the Moroccan-Spanish border of Ceuta | DW News” – below is their description.
A diplomatic spat between Spain and Morocco, which led to record numbers of migrants entering the Spanish enclave of Ceuta, showed signs of easing on Wednesday as Morocco moved to reimpose border restrictions.
More than 8,000 people made their way into the Spanish city on the North African coast over the past two days, many swimming across a perilous stretch of water.
The Spanish Interior Ministry said that around 4,800 of the migrants and asylum-seekers had since returned to Morocco. Unaccompanied minors had been taken into care by authorities.DW News YouTube Channel

In This Story: Ceuta
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.
