About 800 migrants attempted to cross the border between Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Ceuta through a high fence; while 602 of them succeeded, 15 law enforcement officers were injured in the clashes, the Civil Guard of Spain reports.

Five of the injured law enforcement officers were taken to hospital.

Migrants made an attempt to cross a seven-meter high fence separating Morocco from Spain, at 6:35 a.m. They threw stones, sticks, Molotov cocktails, feces and hashish at law enforcement representatives and used sprays as flamethrowers. The migrants tried to cut the barbed wire on the fence with scissors and hammers.
