Spain: Melilla Migrant Rush An Attack On "Territorial Integrity". Morocco says 18 Migrants died



 1. NGOs denounce: at least 27 dead in the assault on Melilla.
At least 27 and not 18, as officially announced, would be the migrants who died yesterday in the crowd trying to enter the Spanish enclave of Melilla.

The complaint comes from two NGOs: the Spanish Caminando Fronteras  ,  and the Moroccan Association of Human Rights, according to which there are also hundreds of injured, both among migrants and among Moroccan law enforcement officers.
2. Spanish Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, on Saturday, described a deadly migrant rush in the enclave  of Melilla bordering Morocco as "an attack on the territorial integrity" of Spain which he blamed on "mafias that traffic in human beings".

Dramatic scenes on Friday saw some 2,000 migrants storm border fences separating Morocco  from the Spanish enclave Melilla, leading to at least 18 deaths, according to the latest Moroccan official toll.
*** Ceuta  and Melilla  :
Melilla, along with fellow Spanish enclave Ceuta, are the European Union's only two borders  with the African continent and both towns have long been magnets for migrants  willing to risk their lives to reach the bloc.
