“People die every day, on the sea or in the desert, this is no different,” 19-year-old Mohamed from Sudan told news agency TT’s reporter at the migrant camp in Calais.
Mohamed, whose journey to France included spending 15 days adrift on an overloaded boat in the Mediterranean, said that the increasing number of deaths and injuries related to getting through the tunnel wouldn’t scare neither him nor his friends from continuing trying.
“Some have been here for one or two years now. They will never get tired of trying.”
Another migrant was left fighting for his life in Paris, after he was electrocuted trying to jump onto the roof of a London-bound Eurostar at the Gare du Nord station on Wednesday.
