African migrant killed by train in Calais


An unidentified African migrant was killed at the entrance of Euro Tunnel after being hit by a freight train.  He is believed to be from either Sudan or Eritrea.

About 10 people are thought to have died after their attempt to cross from Calais (France) to Britain failed.

A spokesman for Euro Tunnel, however, denied this saying police were called after a person was found unconscious near the railway tracks at 2.30 a.m earlier today (Thursday, September 24).  He said they have no authority to confirm death of anyone.
