The 16 men found in a container on board a Cherbourg to Rosslare ferry yesterday morning are understood to be of Kurdish origin.

The men – who are all believed to be aged between 20 and 40 – have been transferred to an immigration reception centre in Dublin, where they are being given accommodation and food.

Most, if not all, of them are expected to claim asylum in Ireland and were processed under immigration legislation by gardaí and members of the National Immigration Bureau.
