PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): An Afghan boy, one of the first child migrants reaching Britain from Calais jungle in France, has met his brother after more than a decade, a TV channel reported.

Aimal Khan, 14, was reunited with his older brother Asif, who told Sky News: "It was a great moment, when I saw him after a long time, more than 10 years."

Asif, a 25-year-old chef who has been living in the UK for 11 years, emotionally hugged and kissed his brother. Aimal was small when they last met, but now has changed a lot.

Although he reserved the right of residence with family in Britain, the boy spent the past five months stranded in the Calais Junglecamp, the channel said.

"Sometimes I missed mum, sometimes I cried as I was not with my family; no parents. I missed my mum," said the teenager -- one of 14 unaccompanied youngsters the Home Office bussedin to Croydon.
