What’s behind the migrant crisis between Morocco and Spain?

  • Gulf TV,Oman

Many migrants using inflatable rings and dinghies have often made the dangerous journey from Morocco into Spain. But this week an influx of at least 8,000 was unusually high, threatening a humanitarian crisis. Many were young men, but there were also families and unaccompanied minors. At least one person died making the crossing. Thousands have been expelled by the Spanish authorities. Campaigners are worried the migrants’ rights have been violated during what they describe as a ‘rapid pace of expulsions’. The number of arrivals has now dropped after what appears to be an attempt by Morroccan authorities to tighten border controls. Police scuffled with people as they tried to force their way into the Spanish enclave of Ceuta. The event has caused a diplomatic row between the two countries. So, how does this affect the migration across Europe? Presenter: Mohammed Jamjoom.
