Al-Qaeda Branch Threatens to Annex Spain’s Ceuta, Melilla Enclaves
​On Friday, ERIE tended to almost 500 migrants who had made their way into Ceuta through the fence, which separates the Spanish enclave on the north coast of Africa from Morocco.

Migrants from African countries systematically try to cross the border in Ceuta. In 2015, over 11,600 migrants arrived in the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla, while only 7,485 arrived in 2014. However, the number of attempts to cross the border reduced by 78 percent compared to 2014 due to the creation of international protection offices at the border.
