Presence of Spanish far-right leader in Ceuta condemned

Presence of Spanish far-right leader in Ceuta condemned

Madrid, May 25 (Prensa Latina) More than 50 people tried to break on Tuesday into a hotel in the Spanish autonomous city of Ceuta to protest against the presence there of far-right Vox party leader Santiago Abascal.

The police arrested at least one person in the incident, among dozens of residents who were protesting against Abascal, who traveled to Ceuta, a Spanish city that has been the scenario in recent days where thousands of immigrants from Morocco have tried to reach the Spanish enclave illegally.

Vox proposed the construction of a border wall between Morocco and the Spanish cities of of Ceuta and Melilla, where at least 6,000 illegal immigrants tried to pass, amid a dispute between Spain and the North African country.

Spanish authorities identified 833 minors among those who crossed the border between the Spanish autonomous city in North Africa and Morocco in recent days, RTVE reported.

On Sunday, the repatriations of Moroccan migrants who tried to reach the Spanish territory through Ceuta exceeded 7,500, according to statistics from the Government Delegation in that Spanish autonomous region.

About 500 people returned home on Saturday, some voluntarily, while some 8,000 migrants have arrived in Ceuta since early the week.

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