French authorities say a 20-year-old Iraqi migrant who apparently was trying to sneak across the English Channel to Britain has been found crushed to death in a truck.

The administration for the Pas de Calais region said the man's body was found Tuesday morning by a Hungarian truck driver when he was inspecting his cargo in the Calais port.

Officials say the victim was traveling with two other family members who were unhurt. The young Iraqi was the 12th person to die trying to cross the Channel since June, the administration said.

Thousands of migrants from Syria, Iraq, Sudan, Eritrea and elsewhere are living in filthy camps around Calais.

Danish police say one of its officers was stabbed several times in the stomach inside Denmark's largest asylum center.

Spokesman Henrik Suhr says the male officer, whom he didn't identify, was no longer in a life-threatening condition.

Police have cordoned off the area around the center north of Copenhagen where newly arrived refugees are registered. It also houses those who have had their application rejected and are waiting to be deported.

Suhr added no arrests have been made, adding police were searching for suspects. The motive for the Tuesday morning stabbing at Center Sandholm was not known.
