The week's news at a glance.
Spain said this week it would build higher fences to keep would-be immigrants out of its territories in Africa. Spain has two cities, Melilla and Ceuta, along the coast of northern Morocco, and both are popular destinations for poor Africans trying to get asylum in Europe. In the past two weeks, hundreds of sub-Saharan Africans have stormed the 10-foot razor-wire fences around the cities, ripping some sections down. About 300 people made it inside Melilla, where they were sent to detention centers. Five people were shot and killed trying to enter Ceuta; Moroccan and Spanish police each claim the other force was responsible.
