Video: Detention centres for migrants slammed as 'Spanish Guantanamos'

In this edition we’re reporting on detention centres in Spain, where illegal immigrants are held while the authorities try to organise their deportation. Critics are calling the centres "Spanish Guantanamos", with reports of violence and unhygienic living conditions. Just last night, a dozen immigrants escaped from Madrid's main detention centre, including one who had given FRANCE 24 exclusive footage for this report.
