Migrants in Calais in October 2015
An Afghan refugee was found killed in the back of a truck in the northern French town of Dunkirk, where about 2,600 migrants live in a shanty town, on Monday. The driver contacted police after discovering the body and the man's companions.
The man, who was about 30 years old, was hit by an unidentified object when he stuck his head above the tarpaulin covering the back of the lorry to see if it was going in the right direction, two of his companions who were riding with him told police.
The driver discovered them when he stopped at a motorway service stop and heard sounds coming from the back of his vehicle.
