Migrants sit near the A16 highway as they try to access the Channel Tunnel on June 23, 2015 in Calais, northern FranceBy Estelle Shirbon and Dominique Vidalon LONDON/PARIS (Reuters) - A migrant died trying to cross to Britain from France early on Wednesday, French police said, adding to a number of recent deaths in the Channel Tunnel as British ministers and security chiefs were to meet over the crisis in Calais. Freight and passenger traffic through the rail tunnel has been severely disrupted in recent weeks as large numbers of migrants camped out in the Calais area have tried to board lorries and trains traveling from France to Britain. The situation has turned into a blame game with Eurotunnel asking French and British governments to reimburse it for close to 10 million euros ($11 million) it spent to beef up security to cope with the migrant crisis at Calais.
