Girl, 7, drowns as migrants attempt to cross Channel to UK

A seven-year-old girl has drowned after a migrant boat capsized in northern France.
The child was among 16 on board the boat when it capsized in a canal in Watten, around 20 miles away from Calais.
The canal leads to the Channel near Dunkirk and is a route regularly used by migrants attempting to cross to the UK.
The boat used in the incident was not big enough to support the 16 on board and capsized shortly after they boarded it, local officials say.
