Vastavam web: More than 180 migrants stormed a border post between Morocco and the Spanish territory of Ceuta today, careering through with agents unable to stop them, authorities said.”They entered at five in the morning running through,” a spokesman for the central government’s representative office in Ceuta told AFP, adding there were 187 people in total.Once on Spanish soil, they celebrated, raising their hands in joy to the camera, one man kneeling on the floor.

Ceuta and Melilla, another Spanish territory on Morocco’s northern border, have the EU’s only land borders with Africa.A police spokesman, however, said this type of border- crossing attempt sprinting through manned posts – was very rare.The migrants who reached Ceuta were eventually rounded up and taken to a reception centre, where they can apply for asylum in Spain. Ceuta is ringed by a double wire fence eight kilometres (five miles) long. The six-metre high fence also has rolls of barbed wire.
