Agents of Spain's Guardia Civil found a man in the fetal position crammed into a specially designed compartment next to the engine of a car trying to cross into the Spanish enclave of Ceuta

The man, from Guinea, was trying to enter the Spanish enclave of Ceuta from Morocco

An African migrant has been caught trying to smuggle himself into Spain while crammed into a tiny space behind a car’s engine, in the latest desperate ploy to enter the EU.

The asylum seeker, reportedly from the West African nation of Guinea, was found hidden beneath the bonnet of the car as it crossed from Morocco into the Spanish enclave of Ceuta – one of two North African territories owned by Madrid.

He was discovered by Guardia Civil border police, squeezed behind the engine block and radiator, lying in a foetal position.

He was reportedly in a bad state of health as a result of the baking temperatures and petrol fumes.

A second migrant, also from Guinea, was found hidden inside a tiny space behind one of the seats inside the car.

They were identified only by their initials, T.D and A.B.

Spanish police became suspicious after noticing that the driver of the car, who was not identified, appeared nervous.


The driver was arrested. The two migrants were taken to a local hospital suffering from cramp and dehydration. Doctors said they could have died had they been inside the confined spaces much longer.

The case recalled that of a young boy who in May was found hidden inside a suitcase in an attempt to enter Ceuta from Morocco.

The eight-year-old boy from Ivory Coast, named Abou, was discovered after the suitcase he was squeezed into was put through an X-ray scanner.

The suitcase was wheeled through the Tarajal pedestrian crossing on the frontier by a 19-year-old woman.

When police opened up the case, the boy peered up at them and said, in French: “My name is Abou.”

Police said the smuggling attempt was highly dangerous and that it “could have ended in tragedy.”

Spain’s border police caught more than 12,500 immigrants last year, most of them in Ceuta and Spain’s other North African enclave, Melilla.

Things we black people do to survive, white folks cant do 1/10 of it and survive.

It not easy in this continent called Africa.

It is well, Africans. Our old and present African leaders failed to make this continent great.

The military era in Africa really killed our economy.

Not since the days of immortan joe have we seen mediocre like this....We expected him to fang it and never be caught, the least he coulda done was to let his captors bear witness and if armed, send him to the halls of Valhalalla where he is awaited with much shine and chrome.
