Migrants risk life and limb crossing snow-choked Alpine passes
Ill-equipped families suffer frostbite and worse as they walk past wealthy skiers in the mountains between Italy and France, writes Tom Kington.
About 1,200 migrants have risked their lives every month this winter crossing the snowy Alpine peaks from Italy into France. It’s a perilous journey that kills some and maims others, but emboldens those survivors who are heading for the Channel.
The numbers braving the eight-hour trek across the border from Claviere and Bardonecchia are higher than in 2020 and 2019, suggesting that the known death toll of six over the past four years could rise in coming weeks.
