IN THE PRESS – Wednesday, May 19, 2021: We look at ongoing reactions to this week’s arrival of thousands of migrants in the Spanish enclave of Ceuta, bordering Morocco. Right-wing Spanish papers shift blame to Spain’s Socialist government, while Moroccan papers accuse Spanish authorities of “beating” Moroccan migrants. The US approves the release of three prisoners from Guantanamo Bay detention centre, where 40 people are still being held. Plus, there’s joy and hesitation as France reopens, while colleagues in the US now struggle to recognise each other without face masks.FRANCE 24 English YouTube Channel

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.
