One Sudanese migrant was killed and another injured in clashes with Afghan migrants outside the French port of Calais, authorities said on Tuesday.

The two migrants were among a group of people from the ‘Jungle’ camp who tried to access a motorway to smuggle onto trucks crossing the Channel to Britain on Monday night, local police said.

 

In scenes that play out nightly, police pushed back the would-be stowaways.

 

A fight later broke out between groups of Afghans and Sudanese returning to the sprawling ‘Jungle’, which is home to nearly 7,000 migrants from across Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia.

 

One Sudanese man died in hospital from stab wounds sustained in the clashes, the police said.

 

Another man was being treated for head injuries but was not in critical condition.

 

An investigation into the incident was underway.
