Suspected head of £7m people-smuggling ring arrested in UK per The Guardian

'A man suspected of heading a multimillion-pound operation that smuggled thousands of people into western Europe is facing extradition after being arrested at an asylum shelter in Liverpool.

Jamal Owda, 26, a Palestinian national, was apprehended on a European arrest warrant after "moving from country to country". The National Crime Agency (NCA) believes him to have been the alleged ringleader of a group responsible for more than 100 migrants – most of them Syrians – entering western Europe every day for at least 16 months, at a charge of about £1,000 per person.'
£1,000 each, not that impoverished these migrants. 

More here but likely not on the pro immigration, Labour supporting BBC.
