Rabat - On August 13, 2014, Spain witnessed a surge of sub-Saharan immigrants into its borders. Around 600 migrants attempted to cross into the North African enclave of Melilla, with none succeeding. Among them were two, identified as N.D. and N.T. Their story led the European Court of Human Rights to bring action against Spain in court.
