Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Soldiers from Spanish military use batons on migrants who have swum to Moroccan border” – below is their description.
Spain deployed its military to the Moroccan border Tuesday as thousands of people jumped fences and swam onto European soil for the second day in a row amid a deepening diplomatic spat. The two countries signed an agreement three decades ago to expel all those who swim across the border. Yet many arriving Tuesday were sub-Saharan Africans who are usually fleeing poverty or violence back home. The arriving adults were being transferred to Ceuta’s main football stadium as they waited to be returned to Morocco while those thought to be minors were sent to warehouses run by a charity group.

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.
