The Coordinator of the Civil Society of Northern Morocco and the Committee for the Liberation of Ceuta and Melilla have today moved the main prayer of the week, which is celebrated on Friday at noon, near the border with Melilla.
According to police sources, between 70 and 80 people have participated in joint prayer, which was led by a Moroccan imam of a nearby town.
For the occasion, the have deployed along the border, in the "no man's land", rugs and mats on which the prayers were made.
Before the start of the prayer, which began around 14.20 Spanish time, activists have expressed proclamations against the Popular Party and against "the occupation and imperialism of Spain."
They have also displayed banners with the image of Melilla's Autonomous President, Juan José Imbroda, as well as PP leader, Mariano Rajoy, and former Prime Minister José María Aznar, who has been criticized by Morocco after visiting the city independently.
The prayer coincides with the celebration of Melilla's Day, which commemorates the 513 anniversary of the Spanish city.
