Melilla: 400 Africans tear down border fence

On Friday, 400 young Africans managed to tear down the border fence from Morocco to the Spanish enclave of Melilla and to penetrate EU territory. The incident is not the first of its kind. And since the invaders are not expected to be returned to Morocco quickly, it will certainly not be the last.

    Pictures speak more than a thousand words. And the images of the charging, laughing young men shown in the video are making the rounds in Africa. Most invaders have a smartphone with them. They film and cheer on their compatriots with their recordings. Anyone who tells a success story, incites imitators.

    At least 18 migrants died as the up to 2000 men rushed to the border fence. This was reported by the Spanish newspapers El País and La Vanguardia. According to the Moroccan Ministry of the Interior, people died in the stampede or by falling from the fence.

    In addition, another 63 migrants and around 140 Moroccan police officers were injured. The Moroccan Interior Ministry accused the migrants of using violence.

    Many of the people arrested by Moroccan authorities are said to be of Sudanese nationality. They had come from the surrounding forests, where they had been gathering for the past few days, to then try to reach the Spanish city in North Africa together. At least 133 migrants managed to get over the two parallel six meter high fences, according to German tabloid, but other sources including cited 400 men.

    The Spanish border guard was clearly overwhelmed. Such a mass of people cannot be stopped without drastic measures – and who wants to be responsible for that?

    Europe continues to tempt these illegal immigrants with social security payments. If they are not rewarded – especially in Germany – why would young Africans set off for a remote, foreign world? They often have hardly any prospects when competing in their own labor market, and none at all in Europe. In Germany, their economic livelihood is secured for at least a few years without gainful employment.

    But Europe lacks the will to assert itself even when confronted by fresh images like these from Melilla.
