‘Just God, the water and us’: risking the Channel ‘death route’ to Britain | AFP

A small inflatable boat inches its way across the English Channel towards the coast of England. On board the crowded dinghy are 14 migrants relying on God to keep them safe during this perilous but long awaited journey. For three weeks, two AFP teams followed Walid, a Kuwaiti, Falah, an Iraqi and his two daughters, from the town of Grande-Synthe in northern France to Dover in the south of England via the choppy waters of the Channel.
