Sky News published this video item, entitled “Over 8,000 Moroccans swim to Spanish seashore” – below is their description.
Over 8,000 Moroccans have swam to the shores of Ceuta, Spain, in the past few days looking for a new life in Europe.
The Spanish enclave of Ceuta is located at the northern tip of Morocco, just across the Strait of Gibraltar from Spain.
Many of the migrants, including children, have risked their lives by swimming beyond the Moroccan border and across the sea to a beach on the Spanish side.

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.
