The Muslims of Ceuta plead for the understanding with Rabat

Persons in Spanish occupied territories of Ceuta and Melilla in Morocco have declared themselves to be enemies of the Spanish state, asking for several demands, including mosques, schools, Islamic professors, and sovereignty of the population. More than 30,000 Muslims live in Ceuta, where they comprise almost half of the population in the Spanish enclave, similar to Melilla. In response to surfacing tensions, Spain first settled in Melilla in 1496 and Ceuta in 1580. Spanish Interior Minister Alfredo Perez Rabalcaca said on public television these two towns are Spanish, and Spanairds who live there want to see their king.
