Thursday, October 27, 2016 France tells migrants to forget Calais as 'Jungle' camp razedWorkmen tear down makeshift shelters on the second day the evacuation of migrants and their transfer to reception centers in France, as part of the dismantlement of the camp called the ''Jungle'' in Calais, France. Bulldozers cleared mounds of debris and tore down makeshift shelters at the "Jungle" migrant camp on Thursday, and authorities said 6,000 people had been evacuated from the squalid site. Charities said however hundreds of migrants might have fled the camp rather than take part in a government programme to rehouse them across the country. Police patrolled the camp and other parts of Calais, where dozens of migrants were wandering. "It is not Calais' role to receive all the migrants of Europe," she said.
