Teenage migrant found hidden in suitcase in Spanish enclave

Teenage migrant found hidden in suitcase in Spanish enclave

His father, who was suspected of having paid the woman to smuggle his son into the country, was later arrested on the Spanish border.

Both cities have six-meter-high border wire fences separating them from Morocco.

Spain said about 1,100 migrants attempted the crossing.

Separately, Spanish police said a Moroccan woman was arrested in Ceuta last week for trying to smuggle a 19-year-old migrant from Gabon across the border with Spain curled up inside a suitcase.

A picture of a sub-Saharan migrant hiding inside a suitcase in Ceuta, the Spanish enclave in northern Africa, is putting the spotlight again on the extreme measures migrants take to reach Europe.

The migrant teen and his smuggler were trying to pass through the same Spanish-Moroccan border - Spain's North African enclave of Ceuta - where 55 border guards were injured Sunday during a massive human stampede. In November, hundreds of migrants reached the fence. Two migrants were found hiding in a auto while another was found in a suitcase.

The rush injured five Spanish policemen and 50 members of the Moroccan forces, including one who lost an eye, the statement added.

Morocco's interior ministry said 10 of its security forces were seriously wounded.

A similar assault on 9 December involved more than 400 African migrants.

According to the International Organization for Migration, a total of 5,000 migrants died in 2016, making it the deadliest year ever for migrants in the Mediterranean.

The discoveries came as more than 1,000 migrants stormed a border fence between Morocco and Ceuta on New Year's Day in what the Spanish government has described as in an "extremely violent and organised" manner.
