The United Nations (UN) has urged for an independent investigation into the deaths of 23 migrants in Morocco.
The deaths reportedly occurred after hundreds of migrants tried to break into the Spanish enclave of Melilla from Morocco.
Authorities in Morocco are reported to have said a number of individuals were crushed to death in a stampede on Friday, June 24, 2022 after a section of border fence was cut open.
The authorities also reportedly stated that others may have been killed after falling from a border fence.
The deaths have led to protests in Spain, as demonstrators believe the government’s hard-line policies are forcing migrants to take desperate measures.
