About 500 people returned home on Saturday, some voluntarily, while some 8,000 migrants, including at least 800 minors, have arrived in Ceuta since early this week.

Ceuta, which is close to Melilla, is an access point for those who try to reach the Spanish territory from Morocco.

The situation peaked in the middle of the week, causing strong statements from both countries and the involvement of the European Union (EU).

Some days ago, the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell, underlined the ‘dimension’ of the incidents that transcend the external borders of the community bloc, while European Executive President Ursula von der Leyen expressed her support for Spain.

After a week of bilateral tensions, both countries reached an agreement for the return of migrants to Morocco.
