[BREITBART] Some 50 migrants colonists on Monday forced their way into Spain’s Melilla city over the fence that separates the European enclave in northern Africa, authorities there said.
The central government’s delegation in Melilla, which borders Morocco, said that they were part of a group of around 250 migrants colonists who launched a "massive and violent entry" into the city, scaling the fence and ignoring the Spanish law enforcement officers on guard.
A Red Thingyfront man in the city said that volunteers had assisted several migrants colonists with cuts and bruises at the gates of Melilla’s temporary migrant internment center, and that at least four of them had been transferred to a hospital with possible bone fractures and other ailments.
One soldier from Spain’s Armed Forces was injured, the government’s delegation said.
The poor thing is no doubt much happier now, wherever he found himself.

[DefenseWeb Zambia] A gun attack in a mining area in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) killed three Chinese nationals, China's official Xinhua news agency reported, citing the Chinese embassy in the mineral-rich central African country.
The attack on Saturday was in Ituri province, bordering Uganda and South Sudan, Xinhua said, without naming the mine or the company operating it. "Three Chinese citizens were unfortunately killed," it said.
The DRC is the world's biggest producer of cobalt – a key ingredient in batteries for electric vehicles – and one of Africa's biggest copper producers, although its key copper-cobalt producing region is the south-west, far from the attack.
The country attracted billions of dollars in investment from Chinese miners in recent years despite security risks. Canadian gold miner Banro, which owns mines in Maniema, a DRC province south of Ituri, suspended operations last year after several mines were overrun by armed rebels.
The Chinese embassy asked the Congolese government to "take effective measures to protect the lives and property of Chinese citizens" in the DRC, as well as to expedite an investigation into the killings, Xinhua said, noting the embassy repeatedly advised Chinese citizens against travel to Ituri due to armed groups.

Mining is a racket. Why should those Chinese citizens have been killed in a country so far away from their own?
[AnNahar] Seven people were killed when two jacket wallahs, suspected to be members of Nigeria's Boko Haram ... not to be confused with Procol Harum, Harum Scarum, possibly to be confused with Helter Skelter. The Nigerian version of al-Qaeda and the Taliban rolled together and flavored with a smigeon of distinctly Subsaharan ignorance and brutality... jihadist group, attacked a village in northern Cameroon ...a long, narrow country that fills the space between Nigeria and Chad on the northeast, CAR to the southeast. Prior to incursions by Boko Haram nothing ever happened there... on Sunday, police and a local official said.
"Two Boko Haram bombers blew themselves up at around 8pm" in the attack on Amchide, on the border with Nigeria, a policeman said Monday, while a local official said a village chief and two teenagers were among the dead.
The attack took place as the villagers were "returning home" though a zone that the authorities have said is dangerous after 6pm, the official said.
Amchide is a small trading village in Cameroon's Far North province, a tongue of land that lies between Chad to the east and Nigeria to the west.
The province has been hit since 2014 by Boko Haram fighters making incursions from northeast Nigeria ... a particularly crimson stretch of Islam's bloody border... The jihadists' campaign has killed more than 27,000 people since 2009, several thousand of them in Cameroon, and displaced more than two million, sparking a dire humanitarian crisis in the Lake Chad region.
According to Amnesia Amnesty International, at least 275 people were killed in the Far North last year.

A U.S. soldier and several SDF personnel were allegedly killed in an ambush in eastern Syria this evening, Leb ...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozeen flavors of Christians. It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers... ’s al-Mayadeen TV claimed.
"An American officer and several SDF soldiers were killed in an ambush targeting a patrol in Wasiy’ah in the northern countryside of Deir Ezzor," al-Mayadeen reported.
No further details have been released.
A similar claim was also made on some pro-opposition media channels; however, they provided the same details as al-Mayadeen.
