(L-R) Illegal Sub-Saharan immigrants Marais Moses, Youssif Harrare, Mobari Wala from Ghana, Ibrahim Saint from Niger, and Maxwell Effah and Mousah Awudu, also from Ghana, sit on a mountain top some two kilometers from the Moroccan border town of Beni Enzar, next to the Spanish enclave of Melilla, in the background. They are of the few remaining immigrants hiding out in the mountains near the border since the Moroccan police and gendarmerie started rounding up illegal immigrants to deport to the Algerian border. Since September 30, over 1,500 illegal immigrants attempted to cross into Melilla in waves of up to 600 at a time, jumping over razor sharp barbed wire fences seperating the two borders. | Location: Beni Enzar, Nador, Morocco.
