French Refugee Camp Turns Into Battlefield As 1,000 Officers Take On Refugee Riots [VIDEO]
“The Jungle” migrant camp in Calais, France has turned into a battlefield where police and refugees clash ahead of the camp’s closure Monday morning.
The Jungle is home to almost 7,000 migrants hoping to reach the United Kingdom. Authorities will start the process of demolishing the camp Monday, but the migrants have a hard time accepting the closure.
Tensions were running high Saturday night when migrants threw rocks and fireworks at riot police, who responded with tear gas.
