Spain sent 55 migrants back to Morocco yesterday a day after they forced their way into the Spanish territory of Melilla during an assault on the border in which two died and 19 were injured.
A total of 208 migrants entered Melilla on Sunday after climbing over two barbed wire fences which separate the tiny territory from northern Morocco.
The Spanish government said another 140 have requested asylum, 10 are recovering from their injuries and three are minors.
