Man dies at UK migrant center criticized over conditions

LONDON (AP) — A man held in a much-criticized migrant center in Britain has died after falling ill, sparking renewed criticism of the Conservative government over its treatment of asylum seekers.

A man staying at the Manston migrant center in south-east England died in hospital on Saturday after he “became unwell”, the Home Office said.

The authorities are trying to contact the next of kin of the man, who is believed to have arrived in England on November 12 in a small boat.

“We take the safety of those in our care extremely seriously, and we are deeply saddened by this event,” the Ministry of the Interior said. “A post-mortem examination will take place so it would not be appropriate to comment further at this time.”

According to the statement, “there is currently no evidence that this tragic death was caused by an infectious disease.”

Cases of diphtheria, scabies and other infectious diseases have been reported at Manston, where those arriving by boat across the English Channel are sent for security and identity checks before being moved to longer-term accommodation.
