We do not know much at the moment, a body disarticulated after a violent clash found last night at the edge of the highway, the place, time, physical appearance, clothing lead to think that he was a migrant. No witness was found there or spoke afterwards to the associations.


A gathering took place from 5.30 to 6.30 place d’Armes, in the center of Calais, in homage to the unknown dead. About forty persons came. It was a decision taken last Wednesday by migrants support associations to gather whenever a death would occur to mark our refusal to the unacceptable and its banalisation.

This is the ninth death known on British border since the beginning of the year. On February 10, the body of an Afghan exile missing for several days was found in the harbor. On March 2 a Sudanese exile was found dead in his tent in the slum. On March 31 an Afghan exile died on the highway, hit by a truck that did not stop. On April 1 British volunteers announced the death of an exile who lived in the camp of Grande-Synthe. He had managed to cross the border on the axles of a truck, which had an accident in the UK. On May 9, a Pakistani exile died on the port access ring road, hit by a car. On May 29, an Afghan exile died on Highway 16, hit by a truck. On July 4, an exile died on the ring road. On the night of July 11 to 12, Samrawit died hit by a truck that did not stop on the ring road, while she was stuck in Calais following the expulsion on the morning of the camp of Steenvoorde (see here and there).
