MOROCCO BUILDING RAZOR-TOPPED WALL TO KEEP AFRICAN IMMIGRANTS OUT OF SPANISH TERRITORY
Morocco is reported to be building a razor-topped wall near Spain’s North African enclave of Melilla to stop illegal migrants crossing into Europe.
Local human rights NGOs are claiming that construction work for the barrier began 20 days ago, according to the AFP news service.
Chekib el-Khayari, head of the Rif Association for Human Rights, said his association had information that “these barriers will be five metres high and will be topped with blades.”
Melilla and the other Spanish North African enclave of Ceuta form the only two land borders between Africa and a European Union member state.

According to AFP: “Both have seen a flood of illegal border crossings by African migrants seeking a better life in Europe. In March, 1,000 people tried to jump a Spanish built triple-layer fence separating the city from Morocco, with half of them getting through — the biggest such crossing in nearly a decade.”
