Hundreds Of African Migrants Armed With Flamethrowers And Feces Storm Spanish Border, Injure Law Enforcement
Early Thursday morning, some 800 sub-Saharan migrants armed with flamethrowers, Molotov cocktails, mallets, shears, and plastic containers filled with feces stormed a Spanish border fence, violently clashing with law enforcement.
At least 15 Civil Guard officers suffered injuries, five of whom were transferred to a local hospital, according to a report from Spain’s Civil Guard. “Molotov cocktails have also been recovered, as have bags of hashish,” the report added.
More than 600 of the migrants successfully crossed the Spanish-Moroccan border fence into Ceuta, a Spanish autonomous city along the coast of North Africa.
