French police clash with migrants in Calais

frenchClashes have broken out in the French port of Calais where demolition teams are tearing down parts of a migrant camp known as the “jungle”, BBC reports

Police have gone through the camp telling people to leave their shacks and move to shipping containers that have been installed on another part of the site.

Calais Police Commissioner Fabienne Buccio said there were very few people left in the camp.
