Spanish police have released a photograph of a young African man found hidden in a woman’s suitcase.
The 19-year-old was treated by medics after suffering from for a shortage or oxygen.

A Moroccan woman was arrested for attempting to smuggle the young immigrant across the border into Spain’s North African enclave of Ceuta.

There are thousands of sub-Saharan Africans living illegally in Morocco, who try to use the enclave as a way of reaching Europe.

On January 1 over a thousand immigrants stormed the 6m border fence separating Ceuta from Morocco.
Fifty Moroccan and five Spanish border guards were injured in the incident.

None managed to get through, but two people were hurt scaling the fence and were taken to hospital in Ceuta.
