    Sub-Saharan migrants and refugees scale a metallic fence that divides Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Melilla, early in the morning on Wednesday, May 28, 2014. Several hundred African migrants charged the barbed-wire border fence in SpainÌs North African enclave of Melilla with many managing to get across while dozens of others were beaten back by Moroccan and Spanish police. During the pre-dawn border storming, cries of pain and noises of people being hit could be heard as police from both sides tried to prevent dozens of the sub-Saharan migrants from entering the city from Morocco.
