Two Cameroonian migrants aged 23 and 24 were reportedly set on fire ‘deliberately’ by the Moroccan police. According to France 24 news reports, the incident happened near the Spanish enclave of Ceuta in northern Morocco. The policemen allegedly set fire to mattresses and blankets at the entrance of a cave they were hiding in.
“There was a lot of smoke and a strange smell,” said a migrant who called himself ‘Pierre B’. “After the police left, I went into the cave. I put a cloth over my nose and tried to see what was inside. That was when I saw one body…. I immediately turned around. Then I was told there was not one, but two,” ‘Pierre B’ told France 24.
