In news from Britain, police in Kent are being urged to investigate a Sunday attack on a migrant center in the town of Dover as an act of terrorism. The man suspected of throwing at least two petrol bombs at the migrant center was found dead shortly after; he reportedly died by suicide. At least two people were injured after a fire broke out at the center, which is used to process asylum seekers who’ve taken on the dangerous journey to cross the English Channel on makeshift boats in the hopes of finding refuge in the U.K. After the attack, about 700 asylum seekers were moved from Dover to the Manston detention center in Kent, which advocates say is “catastrophically overcrowded.” They’ve since denounced squalid and inhumane conditions at the facility.
