More than 1,000 Moroccans who crossed into the Spanish enclave of Ceuta earlier this week are still there.
Several thousand swam or used boats to reach it, sparking one of the biggest diplomatic spats between Madrid and Rabat in recent years.

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.
