An African migrant sits outside the fence of a Spanish government-run temporary immigrants holding centre in Spain's north African enclave Melilla March 23, 2014. Spain has more than doubled the strength of security forces at Melilla, after about 500 people stormed its fences in the biggest border rush for years. Immigrants from all over Africa regularly dare the razor-wire fences of Spanish enclaves Ceuta and Melilla, which are surrounded by Moroccan territory and sea. The numbers have multiplied as increased naval patrols discourage attempts to get to Europe by boat. REUTERS/Juan Medina
