More Than 50 Border Guards Injured After 1100 Migrants Storm Border Fence [VIDEO]

More than 50 border guards were injured when 1,100 migrants stormed a border fence on Sunday.

The migrants tried to reach Spain’s North African enclave of Ceuta by climbing a 20 ft-high fence. Just two migrants successfully managed to get across the border, but both were badly injured and needed hospital treatment.

Fifty Moroccan and five Spanish border guards were injured. Ten officers are in serious condition, according to Morocco’s interior ministry. One of them reportedly “lost an eye” during the clashes.

Similar attempts by large groups of migrants have taken place in recent months. Around 400 migrants were stopped in December when they tried to breach the border fence.

A successful attempt took place in November, when 220 refugees managed to make it across the border.

Do you think this could happen here when the wall gets built?
