LONDON: A man who died in the UK’s Manston immigration facility a week after crossing the English Channel has been identified as Iraqi, The Times reported on Monday.

The man, in his 30s, arrived in Britain on Nov. 12 but suffered organ failure following the journey by boat.

The death, the first in the high-profile immigration center, has been referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

Charities and human rights groups have criticized conditions at Manston, warning that migrants are left without access to medical help following perilous crossings across the Channel.
