English Channel boat deaths: At least five killed and 47 rescued at sea

Al Jazeera English

At least five people, including a child, have died while trying to cross the English Channel from France to the UK. The small boat they were on had been carrying more than 100 would-be refugees and migrants. A British Border Force Volunteer boat carried several people to shore while French authorities say they rescued at least 47 others. The disaster happened hours after the UK parliament passed the so-called Rwanda Bill -- the government's controversial plan to process migrants and refugees offshore. Al Jazeera’s Harry Fawcett has more from London. Aissatou Ndiaye is the representative of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Rwanda. She says UNHCR remains "deeply concerned' about the risks the UK-Rwanda scheme poses.
