One man was found dead and 34 others still alive in a shipping container after staff at a British port heard banging and screaming coming from inside.


The men, women and children, all believed to be from the Indian subcontinent, were discovered Saturday inside the container at Tilbury Docks, east of London, on a ship that came from the Belgian port of Zeebrugge.


Because a body was found, Essex Police has launched a homicide investigation. "Staff here at the port became aware of screaming and banging coming from a container," police superintendent Trevor Roe told reporters.
