French Prime Minister Jean Castex described the incident as a “tragedy.” “My thoughts are with the many missing and injured, victims of criminal smugglers who exploit their distress and misery,” Castex said in a tweet on Wednesday.

French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin is heading to Calais. He expressed “strong emotions facing the tragedy of the deaths of many migrants after a boat capsized in the English Channel.”
