Twenty-seven illegal immigrants, including a pregnant woman, were killed trying to reach Britain from France by water
France says it is stepping up surveillance of its northern shores after a rubber dinghy sank on Wednesday in an attempt to cross the English sea route from France.
The dead included seven men, seven women, including a pregnant woman, and three teenagers. The men were aboard a rubber dinghy that sank when the wind blew.
The issue has exacerbated pre-existing tensions between France and Britain. Relations between the two countries are already strained by Britain’s ‘Bridget’ expulsion from the European Union.
The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson has said that France was to blame for the incident, while the French Home SecretIG has said that the British mismanagement of immigration was to blame. At a time when each other is being blamed, the two countries have reiterated a common solution to the issue of migrants.
French President Emmanuel Mechuan has defended France’s move, saying France is a “transit point” for migrants seeking to travel to several other European countries. He said more co-operation was needed between European countries to tackle the problem of illegal immigration.
Speaking in the Croatian capital, the French president said his forces were working day and night, but that the maximum number of French troops needed to be monitored by drones.
Immigrants in tents on the outskirts of Dunkirk, on the other hand, say they will not give up trying to reach Britain, despite the worst of the 27 deaths in the waterway between France and Britain. Why not face.
Due to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, many migrants try to reach European countries through illegal routes. A large number of people have migrated from Syria before.
Manzar, a 28-year-old Kurd from Iran, told Reuters news agency that the trip could be dangerous, that we might die, but that we had no choice but to travel by boat. ۔
Manzar said goodbye to Iran six months ago and arrived in France twenty days ago.
A total of 34 people aboard the dinghy (a rubber leisure boat built into the air) sank on Wednesday when it sank in a waterway between France and Britain, according to French Interior Minister Gerald Dermanin. The incident killed 27 people, including a pregnant woman. Details about the nationalities of those killed are not yet clear. The survivors, according to the interior minister, are suffering from hypothermia.
The French interior minister has blamed human traffickers for the tragedy. He said that these smugglers endanger the lives of men, women and children.
Meanwhile, French police have arrested four people suspected of involvement in the sinking.
