"30,000 Subsaharians about to jump to Europe from Ceuta and Melilla", headines El País, as Spanish intelligence warns that a growing number of African migrants are poised to enter into Spain trhough the two Spanish enclaves in Moroccan territory.

According to the Madrid daily,
around 30,000 Subsaharians are settled in Morocco, waiting to enter illegally in Europe, mostly from Ceuta and Melilla. […] After the recent assault on the border fence in Ceuta, where 15 Africans drowned to their death, all the reports warn about the "enormous migratory pressure" around the two autonomous Spanish towns. In Morocco there are "well structured criminal organisations" that are carrying and addressing the thousands of immigrants who are fleeing their countries.
