In pictures.. Diaries and suffering of migrants on the banks of the Channel
Suffering, cold, waiting and aspiration for a better life, titles that summarize the diaries of irregular immigrants in France, waiting for the opportunity to reach Britain via the English Channel.
They live in informal camps in various areas such as Calais and Grand Synthe near Dunkirk.
Life is difficult in these modest camps, which were monitored by the lens of Anadolu Agency.
Migrants are forced to queue to shower, where water is available, while others fend for themselves.
Migrants play football to pass the time, while they wait for the right opportunity to cross into Britain.
Migrants light a fire to get some warmth, and charge their phones with power sources supplied by various civic organizations.
The bodies of 16 Iraqi immigrants arrived last Sunday, on a plane, at Erbil airport, capital of the Kurdistan region (north), who had drowned about a month ago in the English Channel between France and Britain.
Since the beginning of this year, more than 25,000 people have entered the UK irregularly, coming from France across the Channel.
