Migrants walk near trucks blocked on a road which leads to the Channel Tunnel terminal in Coquelles near CalaisBy Pierre Savary and William James CALAIS/LONDON (Reuters) - Like many migrants drawn to the French port of Calais, Ali, a 22-year-old Iraqi, is convinced his life will be better if he can make it across the 30 km (20 mile) stretch of sea separating him from Britain. "I know people in London, they can help me and it will be a new life," Ali said, speaking on the outskirts of a Calais migrant slum. "It cannot be worse than in France." Dislocated by war, political turmoil and poverty, 3,000 migrants like Ali are living in makeshift camps in and around Calais, hoping to find a way to the other side.

The anniversary comes less than a fortnight after an attack in Tunisia highlighted the ongoing Islamist threat.
