Migrants Smash Up Deportation Centre, Protest for 11 Hours on Roof
Around 40 predominantly Algerian illegal migrants held a rowdy protest in Spain, smashing furniture before climbing onto the roof of their accommodation.
The migrants were seen screaming “freedom, freedom” from the rooftop in Madrid, where they spent 11 hours. Reports also emerged of security cameras covered up and a door being broken.
“We are trying to negotiate with them… We’ll see if they come down by themselves,” the national police spokesman in Madrid told AFP. “Police are in control of the situation,” he added.
A spokesman for the city hall said no one had been injured in the mutiny and the mayor, Manuela Carmena, also said that she was ready to attempt a mediation alongside the district authorities.
“Events at the detention centre continue to worry me,” the mayor said on Twitter. “Human rights are the priority.”
