ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Nearly 70 sub-Saharan African migrants were injured when about 200 tried to jump the razor-wire-topped fence separating northern Morocco from the Spanish enclave of Ceuta on Tuesday (August 1), the Red Cross said. Police said around 60 managed to enter Spanish territory whilst the Red Cross said 14 people had to be hospitalised. The migrants used wire cutters to breach a gate, according to a spokesman from the Ceuta government. Between 1,000 and 1,500 people are camping out in the scrub and woods around the enclave waiting for the opportunity to rush the border, he said.
