35 Undocumented Immigrants Found In Shipping Container
One of the immigrants was dead in the container from Belgium that was unloaded in England Saturday.[su_center_ad]
“As a result of the ferry docking, staff at the port became aware of screaming and banging coming from the container,” Essex Police Superintendent Trevor Roe said.
It is unclear where the container originated.
Authorities launched a homicide investigation into the death. About 50 other containers are being searched.
“This is a humanitarian issue and the welfare of these patients is a priority,” Roe said.
Investigators are working with their Belgian counterparts.[su_sky_ad]
