“In a first, a Sudanese Migrant Nearly Crosses the English Channel on Foot,” by Dan Bilefsky for the New York Times:
For one African migrant, there was nothing left to lose.
The migrant, Abdul Rahman Haroun, 40, risked his life this week by climbing four fences, evading international search teams and as many as 400 security cameras, and walking about 30 miles in the darkness of the Channel Tunnel in an effort to reach Britain from Calais, France.
He dodged trains traveling to London from Paris as they hurtled by at up to 100 miles per hour…
He had made it nearly to the other side, Folkestone, England, before he was caught and arrested on Tuesday.
