African migrant dies in Moroccan sewer in attempt to reach Spain

A MIGRANT from sub-Saharan Africa has died in the Moroccan border town of Nador as he tried to sneak into Spanish enclave Melilla via the sewage system.

Local police also dragged three other undocumented men out of the subterranean wastewater channel, all of whom were admitted to hospital for treatment before being released, according to reports by Moroccan news agency MAP.

The incident occurred in the coastal city’s port, which is a hotbed of migrants wishing to cross the border into Europe, many using increasingly ingenious or dangerous methods to do so.

While many opt to jump the border fences of Melilla or Ceuta, Spain’s other North African enclave, or travel by boat, others have been found hiding inside consignments of scrap metal, suitcases, car bumpers, spare wheel compartments, and even a dashboard.
