Dozens of migrants abused trying to cross Spanish border

Dozens of migrants have been abused since December 25 trying to enter the Spanish city of Ceuta, media reported.

Six migrants have been killed, three drowned and some 19 others hospitalized trying to enter the Spanish territory by sea, according to The Local, citing the Moroccan Association for the Integration of Immigrants.

The Spanish territories of Ceuta and Melilla, which are on North Africa's Mediterranean coast, are occasionally used by migrants as a launch pad to Europe.

Europe is currently struggling with the greatest refugee crisis since the end of the World War II.

The UNHCR and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) announced in a joint statement the number of migrants who crossed into Europe by both land and sea has reached the one million mark last week.
