Some 400 sub-Saharan migrants on Wednesday attempted to scale the fences surrounding the north African Spanish enclave Melilla, reports AP. Around 150 breached some of the barriers. All were later returned to Morocco. Melilla, and Spain's other enclave Ceuta, are often targeted by migrants hoping to reach the EU.
