Fifty-two migrants have forced their way into Spain's North African exclave from Morocco by scaling the border fence. The territory has become a regular flashpoint for African migrants in recent years.
Around a hundred migrants on Sunday tried to climb the fence that separates Morocco from the Spanish exclave of Melilla.
Spain's Interior Ministry said 52 of the migrants from sub-Saharan African countries managed to get across the 6-meter (19.6 ft) high structure.
The migrants tried to storm the barbed wire fence at dawn, but Spanish and Moroccan security forces prevented "around half" from entering Melilla.
Sunday's incident was the largest migrant storm since last October when some 300 migrants scaled the fence.
. About 200 migrants managed to get into the exclave, and one died of a suspected heart attack in the attempt.

Near these two territories, tens of thousands of migrants from African countries are waiting for a chance to enter the EU's only land borders with Africa.
