African migrants rejoice after scaling 20ft barbed wire fences to reach 'promised land'
Hundreds of migrants dropped to their knees and threw their hands in the air (left) this morning in scenes of jubilation after they successfully scaled a six-metre (20ft)-high barbed wire border fence to enter one of Spain's enclaves in Africa.
More than 200 migrants stormed across a triple-layer border fence into Spain's north African territory of Melilla, the Spanish authorities said. Bottom right: Migrants scale a border in a night attempt and top right, they enter a temporary accommodation centre for migrants.
