Ceuta and Melilla are the only land border between Africa and the European Union.

It is one of the bloodiest episodes in the history of the only land border between Africa and the European Union.

Since last Friday, June 24, the death of at least 23 people has been confirmed after 2,000 migrants of sub-Saharan origin tried to cross the Melilla fence, the fortified line that divides Spain and Morocco.

Various humanitarian organizations allege that the real death toll could be higher and demand an immediate investigation to clarify the causes of the event.

Spain blames what happened to the mafias that are dedicated to human trafficking and its Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchezdescribed the massive arrival of migrants as a “violent assault” against the “territorial integrity” of the country.
