Madrid: More than 200 migrants stormed across a triple-layer border fence Friday into Spain`s north African territory of Melilla, the Spanish authorities said.

In one of the largest such attempts in several years, some 300 people launched a dawn bid to cross into the Spanish city, which lies on the northern tip of Morocco, with about 200 making it over.
