14-year-old Afghan boy run over by car in France
KABUL (Pajhwok): An Afghan boy, trying to reach the United Kingdom, has been killed in a hit-and-run incident near the Calais port in France, a British newspaper reported.
Assisted by another minor, the 14-year-old was killed while attempting to climb the roof of a truck, The Guardian said. He was run over by a car after falling onto the road.
The boy’s family is residing in the United Kingdom, but slow progress of his transferal application prompted him to jump on trucks to reach Britain.
