A boy using plastic bottles tied to himself and his clothes to keep afloat has arrived at Spain’s north African territory of Ceuta after swimming across the Spain-Morocco border. The child was spotted in the water by soldiers on El Tarajal beach before he attempted to climb the wall into the city. The migration attempt comes as an estimated 8,000 people – including 2,000 minors – made it to the Spanish territory in recent days before the majority were sent back.
