Attacker firebombing UK immigration centre dead: One injured

UK's Home Minister Suella Braverman, already on the mat in Parliament over several issues, has said she will resort to the stalled Rwanda scheme and prosecute illegal migrants even as 1,000 of them landed at Dover crossing the treacherous channel on Saturday alone.

LONDON, Nov 1: The Border Force immigration centre in the southern English port of Dover was attacked with petrol bombs on Sunday. The bombs were attached with fireworks. One person reportedly suffered injuries from the fire.

The attacker, 66, hailed from distant High Wycombe, an English town northwest of London, Kent police said. He came in a vehicle and threw three petrol bombs. One of them did not go off. Later he was found dead at a petrol station nearby. The man reportedly killed himself.

The fire was put out by the immigration staff.

Daily Mail reported that the man was not local and had travelled more than 100 miles to the coastal town to carry out the act. The police said they are not treating the bombing as a terrorist attack.

A Reuters photographer at the scene had reported the incident to the police.

1000 migrants cross Channel in a day

About 1,000 migrants crossed the world's busiest shipping lane, the English Channel, in 24 small boats and landed at Dover on Saturday, the Ministry of Defence said. During October over 6,000 people crossed over. Nearly 40,000 have arrived in the UK this year undertaking the treacherous trip. Saturday's crossings were mostly from France. The migrant processing centre in Manston in Kent is overcrowded. The Home Office said the biggest group crossing the channel were Albanians.

Home Secretary Suella Braverman has said she wants to use the stalled scheme of sending migrants to Rwanda. She also wants to use the Nationality and Borders Bill to prosecute illegal migrants.

Braverman has faced criticism for the language she used in Parliament on Monday when she said that she was working to stop the "invasion on our southern coast".
