As African would-be migrants try to scale a triple-strength 7m (23ft) border fence that separates the Spanish enclave of Melilla from Morocco, golfers continue to play their round.

This photo was taken yesterday by local humanitarian group Prodein, which earlier this month released a video supposedly showing Spanish police carrying an unconscious man from Spanish territory to Morocco.


Commenting on the video, in which a 23-year-old Cameroonian man named Danny is removed, Human Rights Watch's Judith Sunderland said: "Spain needs to call an immediate halt to these abusive returns, and the public prosecutor’s office needs to investigate this horrific case. Until the case has been fully investigated, the Guardia Civil should remove these officers from border duties."

Spain claims that 28,000 migrants have entered the enclaves of Melilla and Ceuta in the last decade, with 36 attempts upon the fence this year alone.
