Refugees are waiting to sneak inside the Ferry Port

Calais July 11, 2006 - Each night, the refugees are waiting to sneak inside the ferry port or to crawl under a ferry truck. Refugees from Afghanistan, Iran and Africa who are trying go to get to England, are living in the street near Calais because the refugee camp Sangatte has been closed by French authorities. The dosing of the refugee camp stemed from an agreement between the French and British governments in an effort to stop the flow of illegal immigrants crossing the channel tunnel. ©Jean-Michel Clajot / Cosmos
