A man has been detained after trying to cross into the EU from Morocco.
The man, who was armed with a large knife, attacked a police officer and shouted “Allahu Akbar” while attempting to cross into the Spanish enclave of Melilla.
This footage shows the man, dressed in a blue shirt and white shorts, walking across the border, waving the knife.
Spanish police keep their distance before one officer runs up behind him, striking him on the head with a traffic bollard, knocking him to the ground.
