Spanish police have evicted more than 80 migrants who tried to enter Spain illegally from a Mediterranean islet.

The migrants landed last week on Spain's tiny Isla de Tierra, off the coast of Morocco.

Spanish authorities say police evicted most of the migrants early Tuesday, transferring them to the care of Moroccan authorities.
