UK court finds Senegalese man guilty over migrant sea deaths News

LONDON: A man who piloted an “unseaworthy” boat across the English Channel was found guilty Monday of the manslaughter of four migrants who drowned during the crossing.
Ibrahima Bah, from Senegal, took the helm of the poor quality inflatable carrying 43 people, which should have held no more than 20 passengers, in December 2022.
But within 30 minutes of leaving the northern French coast, the boat got into trouble, with water lapping around the knees of the dozens crammed on board, according to evidence heard at Bah’s trial.
