1,000 desperate poor people try to enter EU at Moroccan border, beat back by security forces

Security forces have foiled an attempt by about 1,000 migrants to charge a six-metre tall border fence that separates Morocco from the Spanish-held north African territory of Melilla, Spain's government said.

The migrants organised themselves into lines and approached the Moroccan side of Melilla's border on Tuesday, according to the government representative.

They got close to the fence, but Spanish and Moroccan security forces were able to block their approach.

Authorities said this practice has become common as desperate migrants try to enter the Spanish cities of Melilla and Ceuta.

Both cities, of about 80,000 inhabitants, share the European Union's only land borders with Africa, making them a common target for hopeful migrants.

...

Last month, Spain began constructing looming barbed wire fences along Melilla's 11-kilometre border.

unrelated query - why does the reporter use the label of 'migrant' for Moroccan Citizens attempting to illegally enter another country ?

It never said they were Moroccan, only that they were in Morocco.. Though I wondered about the "migrant" label as well.

Moderately interesting story I guess.. there doesn't seem to be a punchline, just a story about something continuing to happen that has been happening forever.

"stem bolt" isn't politically loaded either and would also be an incorrect way to describe them... meh.
