Dozens of migrants trying to stow away on vehicles crossing the Channel by tunnel between France and England broke through perimeter fences at Calais overnight, temporarily halting traffic, a Eurotunnel spokesman said on Saturday. The disruption was the latest in a series of incidents involving some 3,000 migrants, mostly from Africa and the Middle East, who are camped around the northern French port in the hope of reaching Britain. "At around 7 p.m. (1400 EDT) on Friday there were migrants all around the perimeter trying to break through the fences," the Eurotunnel spokesman told Reuters.
