Spain: 100 more illegal Muslim migrants swim to Ceuta, three hospitalized for hypothermia: From Morocco, a hundred migrants reach Ceuta by swimming,” translated from “Partis du Maroc, une centaine de migrants atteignent Ceuta à la nage,” FranceInfo, April 26, 2021:

They left the Moroccan beaches near Fnideq (also called Castillejos), south of Ceuta, “some arrived as far as the beach [of Ceuta] by their own means,” detailed a spokesperson for the Civil Guard, while the majority had to be rescued and get on “our boats” to reach the Spanish enclave. “It’s not usual, there may be groups of three, four or five, but as many, no.”

Minors among migrants

No death or injury has been recorded on the Spanish side among this “hundred” migrants, including minors, who went swimming “all day long” in “groups of 20 or 30,” along the coast in the distance. On the other hand, three people were hospitalized for hypothermia. Five other people swam into Ceuta on Monday, the civil guard said.

Migrants from Morocco regularly try to reach Ceuta by sea; it is separated from Morocco by a huge security barrier. Ceuta and Melilla, the other Spanish enclave located on the Moroccan coast, constitute the only land borders of the European Union with Africa, and are regularly the scene of attempts at forcible entry by migrants.

Human Rights Watch on Monday called on Morocco and Spain to end the abusive treatment of sub-Saharan immigrants. The call came after nine migrants drowned trying to reach the Spanish territory of Ceuta, AFP reported.

The security forces “commonly beat, otherwise abuse and sometimes steal” from sub-Saharan migrants, HRW said. Rabat launched an operation in January to regularize the migrants’ situation. The rights group also criticized Spanish security forces for using “excessive force when they summarily expel migrants” from their north African territories of Ceuta and Melilla.

#Morocco : ” Seven Dead and One Thousand Rescued in Attempts to Swim to Europe by Migrant’s trying to reach Ceuta”

#AceWorldNews says seven people have drowned as part of a collective of 200 migrants trying to swim from Morocco’s mainland to Ceuta, a Spanish enclave attached to Morocco’s northern coast, according to the Spanish daily, El Pais.

Potential migrants make frequent attempts to cross the border separating the two, often risking their lives to access the territory which lies just 15 km over the sea from Spain.

Meanwhile, over 1,000 people were rescued from rafts near the Italian island of Lampedusa by Italy’s navy. The country is another major migrant point of entry into Europe and over 200 died in October last year alone, only a kilometre from the coast.

Sea crossings tripled last year, thought to be prompted by regional instability, including civil war in Syria.
