Moroccan Government Admits to Killings At Melilla Border Crossing

MELILLA, SPAIN - OCTOBER 22: A general view of the city is seen October 22, 2005 in the Spanish Enclave of Melilla, Spain. A third of Melilla's 60,000 inhabitants are Muslims of Rif Berber origin. The relationship between the Muslims, among whom unemployment is extremely high, and the rest of the population is strained. Even with a boost to the local economy from the presence of the Spanish troops, Mellilla's economy runs mostly on a contraband trade. Moroccans with a single entry, daily permits enter Melilla to buy goods and bring the goods back into Morocco, past Moroccan border guards who often collect bribes. According to reports on October 25 the Moroccan government admitted that their border guards shot and killed four African migrants October 6 as they tried to enter the Spanish enclave.
