    Thumbs Down Moroccan Soldiers help out in immigration chaos

    Six killed near Spain's enclave

    Six migrants have been shot dead in clashes with Moroccan troops after trying to cross a fence around the Spanish enclave of Melilla.

    Moroccan news agency MAP quoted a government official as saying that the troops opened fire in self-defence.

    The deaths came as Spain and Morocco finalised plans to start expelling immigrants who had illegally entered Melilla and the other enclave of Ceuta.

    Seventy immigrants were sent to Morocco in the first set of expulsions.

    They were flown to mainland Spain before being taken by boat to Morocco.

    Hundreds of migrants have stormed the barbed wire fences surrounding the enclaves in recent weeks.

    'Stepping stone to Europe'

    The governor of Morocco's northern Nador province, Abdellah Bendhiba, told MAP that the six men died during an "assault of rare violence" by some 400 immigrants trying to enter Mellilla overnight.

    The governor said that 290 migrants had been arrested.

    Last week, five other migrants were killed trying to get into Ceuta.

    But Spain's Interior Minister Jose Antonio Alonso said an internal investigation had confirmed that Spanish troops did not fire the shots that killed them.

    The deaths and the attempted crossings are part of a sustained bid by thousands of mainly sub-Saharan Africans, living in tents on the Morocco side of the border, to reach Spanish territory - seen as a stepping stone to Europe.

    Hundreds have made it across, thousands more have been repelled.

    The crossings have prompted reinforcements to the physical barriers, and to the police and army patrols along the perimeter.

    The plan to return those who do get across revives a 1992 accord with Morocco to allow expulsions of illegal entrants back to Morocco, even if they are of different nationalities.

    The agreement has never before been implemented.

    EU monitors

    The BBC's Pascale Harter in Rabat says it is unclear what will happen to the immigrants once in Morocco, as most are of West and Central African origin and are already illegal there.

    The United Nations has warned against any harsh treatment.

    Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero has said urgent work is needed to reduce the poverty gap between Spain and Morocco.

    He said the root of the problem was drought and famine affecting sub-Saharan Africa.

    At Spain's request, the EU has agreed to send a delegation to study the situation in Ceuta and Melilla from both sides of the border.

    Predictable and pathetic UN reaction to the African invasion of Spain.
    :


    UN concern over African migrants

    Eleven people have died in the past 10 days trying to cross the border
    UN Secretary General Kofi Annan is "deeply concerned" about the plight of African migrants trying to cross from Morocco into Spain.

    He urged the Spanish and Moroccan governments to deal with the situation humanely, his spokesman said.

    His comments come after six migrants died trying to scale a fence to enter the Spanish enclave of Melilla.

    The EU and the UN are sending teams to Morocco, amid growing criticism of how the authorities are treating migrants.

    "The secretary-general is deeply concerned about the very serious situation of migrants trying to cross from Morocco into Spain through the enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla," a spokesman for Mr Annan said in a statement.

    Mr Annan "believes these regrettable events in this one region of the world point to a wider problem in dealing with the inevitable and necessary flow of people across borders", the statement added.

    The aid agency, Medecins Sans Frontieres, said on Friday that it had found more than 500 migrants abandoned by Moroccan police in the Sahara desert without food or water, some of whom had been illegally expelled by Spanish police.

    Human rights groups have also criticised Spain's decision to resume the deportation to Morocco of migrants who had already reached Spanish territory.

    At least 70 migrants were expelled from Melilla, in the first set of official expulsions expected under a revived 1992 accord between Spain and Morocco.

    It allows illegal entrants to be sent back to Morocco, even if they are of different nationalities.

    Until now, migrants who successfully entered the enclaves have been housed in holding centres or sent to mainland Spain to await expulsion to their country of origin, often resulting in their release.

    Morocco doesn't like blacks and the UN is afraid of what they're going to do. Moroccans take bus loads of blacks and they love to drop them off in the middle of the desert. But yeah... the big liberal UN wants you white europeans to pay for the coons to live in your country.

    I wasn't aware that they couldn't be stopped and were needed.

    As we all know the statement by Annan is ridiculous. All it takes is a police unit or two to round them up, pack them on the next available slave ship and ship them back to their manufacturer.

    As a side thought, maybe they could be employed in a chain-gang beforehand to pay for their passage "home". Annan and his fellow UN circus clowns & thieves are a joke. It would be so nice to see just one country take a hard line with all the BS and just saying:

    F*** it, we're not going to let all ourselves be run into the ground by all this ridiculous PC nonsense. ing1:

    The Africans should rather be helped to raise up their own countries instead of them emigrating en masse to countries which are already functional. If that means playing Imperialist and Coloniser again in order to whip them into shape, so be it. Unfortunately this will never happen today.
