Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Major migrant influx into EU enclave ends in deaths”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

More than two dozen migrants have died in a stampede while trying to cross into the Spanish enclave Melilla from Morocco, that country’s Association for Human Rights (AMDH) announced on Friday evening.

Around 2,000 migrants, many from Sudan, tried to cross a guarded border fence at dawn on Friday. Harrowing images, published by AMDH, show people lying on the pavement next to the border control area, some with blood-covered hands and torn clothes.

“AMDH Nador confirms that the death toll, as of 9pm, in the ranks of sub-Saharan migrants is 27 dead. All are at Hassani Hospital morgue in Nador. A very heavy, catastrophic record that shows that migration policies are deadly, with borders and barriers that kill,” a caption to the photo reads.
