Swazi Observer - - NEWS -

LON­DON - Eleven chil­dren as young as 12 were among a group of 21 Viet­namese mi­grants found hid­ing in a re­frig­er­ated truck at a busy port. The stow­aways, con­cealed be­hind stacks of sparkling wa­ter, were dis­cov­ered when the ve­hi­cle was checked by Bor­der Force of­fi­cers in Sus­sex. A to­tal of 17 peo­ple ini­tially claimed to be aged 17 or un­der when the truck ar­rived at the Port of Ne­whaven af­ter cross­ing from Dieppe in France – but only 11 of them were con­firmed as mi­nors.
