melillaHundreds of migrants from Morocco were trying to cross the southern EU border at Melilla, a Spanish exclave, on Monday before dawn.

Having torn down a part of a triple six-meter high fence, about 100 made it through, Spanish government officials in the territory said in a statement.

They were the latest of thousands of migrants who try to reach Spain from Africa across the fence or by sea, forced to leave by unrest in Northern Africa, most of them from Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia. – RT
