Dozens of sub-Saharan migrants were taken to a Moroccan hospital with injuries Friday, after hundreds of them stormed the border fence into Spain's north African territory of Melilla, rights activists said.Two of the migrants were in critical condition after being beaten by the Moroccan security forces, including one who was operated on after sustaining severe head injuries, Rachidi told AFP.Thirty-three migrants eventually discharged from hospital were arrested and taken to the police station in Nador.The assault began at 6:00 am, with the migrants rushing the seven-metre (seven-yard) high border fence from the Moroccan side.
