Migrant Crisis: Several migrants remain inside the 'jungle' camp in Calais

Several migrants remain inside the 'jungle' camp in Calais, despite french officials claiming the camp is now empty.

About 200 unaccompanied minors were left with nowhere to sleep overnight.

They are said to be becoming increasingly desperate now that the government has destroyed their makeshift homes in the camp.

Nearly 5,600 people have been moved to shelters and reception centers since Monday, the French government states. This includes around 1,500 unaccompanied minors that have been sent to an on-site container camp, which activists state is now full.

The demolition crews are continuing to clear tents and shelters from the camp, while departing refugees continue to set fires, causing billowing smoke to be taking over the area. The prefect of Pas-de-Calain, Fabienne Buccio considers it as a “mission accomplished” for those involved in the tear-down operation.
