Spain: More Than 1000 Migrants Attempt To Reach Ceuta

They then examined the vehicle and they found the migrant inside the suitcase.

Guards on the border of Ceuta, Spain's enclave in North Africa, say they have recently detained one Moroccan suspected of attempting to smuggle migrants concealed in a suitcase and another suspected of hiding migrants in a auto.

A picture of a sub-Saharan migrant hiding inside a suitcase in Ceuta, the Spanish enclave in northern Africa, is putting the spotlight again on the extreme measures migrants take to reach Europe.

Guards first became suspicious of the woman when they witnessed her using luggage dolly with just one suitcase on top.

An eight-year-old boy was found inside a suitcase the same border in 2015. The case had been carried by a 19-year-old woman.

Over 1,000 migrants tried Sunday to climb the six-meter high fence of the Ceuta enclave in their attempt to join Europe.

Video from the scene shows large numbers of migrants perched on fences where they were halted by Spanish and Moroccan forces before being removed with cranes.

Police stopped a Volkswagen Golf at the North African encalve of Ceuta and found the man, 20, crammed in next to the engine, as well as a 24-year-old woman in hollowed out back seats.

According to the International Organization for Migration, a total of 5,000 migrants died in 2016, making it the deadliest year ever for migrants in the Mediterranean.
