25-year-old Afghan migrant crushed to death by lorry in Calais

May 28, 2016 - 14:38

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): A young Afghan citizen was crushed to death by a lorry near the French port city of Calais on Saturday morning, a media report said.

Living in the so-called Jungle camp, the 25-year-old victim was one of 50 people who placed tree branches on a motorway to slow passing trucks and jump on them.

In a statement, the local prefecture said the Afghan was knocked down just before 4.00 GMT. The accident happened two days after a violent clash at the camp between Afghans and Sudanese migrants.
