Eighteen migrants die in attempted crossing into Spanish enclave

Eighteen migrants have died during an attempted crossing into the Spanish enclave of Melilla, Moroccan authorities have said.
Around 2,000 migrants stormed a high fence that seals off Spain’s North African enclave in a violent-two hour skirmish with border officers.
It marked the first incursion since Spain and Morocco mended diplomatic relations last month.
Morocco’s interior ministry said the casualties occurred when people tried to climb an iron fence.
