Young Emigrant Death – The French authorities have confirmed the death of a 16-year-old Sudanese whose body was found on Sangatte beach, southwest of the city of Calais while trying to reach the United Kingdom.
The authorities mentioned that the young emigrant drowned in the English Channel.
Boris Johnson’s interior minister, Priti Patel says the boy’s death is “a tragic and disturbing loss,” and is the latest victim among so many who have tried to reach the British lands.
The demise of the young Sudanese comes after the attack of a security guard on an emigrant, minutes after a small boat arrived at Kingsdown beach, in the south of the United Kingdom.
A video with images of the arrival of emigrants to that region of Kent was shared on the same day on social networks linked to the extreme right.
The United Kingdom and France are still negotiating on stopping the transport of illegal migrants by small boats from Gallic territory.
