Moroccans trapped in Spain for 2 months head home at last

RABAT, Morocco (AP) — It’s a reverse migrant crisis: Moroccan workers trapped in Spain have been begging their own government to let them come back home. And after more than two months, they’re finally being heard. Hundreds of Moroccans headed to work in Spain’s North African enclave of Ceuta one day in March thinking they’d be home for dinner. But instead they found themselves trapped by Morocco’s abrupt and unusually strict border closure to keep out the virus. They slept in a parking lot, gyms, mosques, churches or with generous employers. A few jumped into the Mediterranean Sea to swim home. Morocco is now starting to let them back in.
