Between Monday 17 and Wednesday 19 May, 8,000 migrants swam to Ceuta, a Spanish enclave located north of Moroccan territory. 1,500 of them, minors, are now detained in centers.

Of the 8,000 migrants who entered the enclave of Ceuta illegally between Monday, May 17 and Wednesday, May 19, 1,500 are minors. Unlike adults, Spanish law prohibits expelling them. In the emergency, two closed centers were set up to accommodate them. Faced with this unprecedented influx, Spain is negotiating with Morocco a way to send them home. In the meantime, they are not allowed to go out.

However, two young people managed to escape. A team from France Télévisions met them. They say they are 13 and 14 years old and have left their homes by slipping into the stream of migrants. With one obsession: to join Europe. They will always have more money begging in Spain rather than returning to Morocco, they assure. And too bad if they are far from their parents. “I had my dad on the phone when I got here, says one of the two boys. He said to me, ‘After all, if it’s to have a better life, go ahead.’ “.
