The fatal attempt of dozens of people trying to cross the border between Morocco and Spain last month, has caused anger and protests in both countries, where demonstrators have demanded an independent investigation.
The video, the authenticity of which was confirmed to AP by Moroccan authorities this week, was shown by those authorities to ambassadors of some African countries after the incident.
In the footage it is possible to see a large group of people walking near the border and trying to climb one of the fences to cross from Nador in Morocco to Melilla on the Spanish side.
Some threw objects toward the Moroccan security forces who tried to stop them by shooting tear gas canisters.
