Melilla Governor Juan Jose Imbroda called for tolerance and respect.
„The peace that we have achieved through the wisdom of the people of Melilla must continue to prevail. International conflicts, however painful, should not affect this exemplary coexistence.”
The incident came hours after a mob of pro-Palestinian Tunisian rebels set fire to a synagogue in the city of El-Hamma.
