Van carrying 52 migrants rams through barriers along Spanish-Moroccan border

A van carrying 52 sub-Saharan migrants rammed through the security gates along the Spanish-Moroccan border at high speeds to enter the enclave of Ceuta on Monday, injuring four in the process.

According to a spokesperson for the office of the Interior Ministry in Ceuta, the van packed with migrants barreled through the metal fence at around 3 am.

The driver, a 38-year-old Moroccan national, and the 52 migrants stowed away in the vehicle were quickly arrested by authorities, Spanish broadcaster Europa Press reports.

Of the 52 sub-Saharan migrants inside of the vehicle, there were 34 men, 16 women, and two minors.

After the vehicle ramming, four of the migrants were taken to the Ceuta hospital where they were treated for minor injuries
