Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Spain Sends Troops to Ceuta to Deter Influx of Mostly Moroccan Migrants” – below is their description.
Spain is sending troops and more police to one of its North African enclaves after a record number of mostly Moroccan migrants entered the territory.
Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska said Tuesday that police numbers in Ceuta, a tiny peninsula across the Strait of Gibraltar and bordered by Morocco, will be raised by around 20%, or 200 officers. Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said soldiers are also being deployed.
Close to 7,000 people, including hundreds of children, entered the territory by swimming ashore or using rubber dinghies on Monday.
The influx is likely to further inflame normally close relations between the two countries that took a downturn earlier this month, when Moroccan officials criticized Madrid for hosting the leader of a movement fighting for independence in Western Sahara, a former Spanish colony that’s claimed by Rabat.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel

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.
