Somali survivor in Channel Boat tragedy

 

A Somali was one of the two people who survived the “fatal attempt to cross the English Channel that separates the UK from France.” French Interior Minister, Gerald Darmanin said.

The other survivor was from Iraq.

At least 27 people ‘drowned’ on Wednesday as they were trying to make the journey in a small inflatable boat. Their identities are not yet known.

” It’s the worst tragedy since the area became a common crossing point for migrants” in 2018. Four suspected people smugglers have been arrested.
