Calais Jungle Children Sent to Reception Centres
The Jungle: Pre-Eviction
In the week leading up to the eviction of the makeshift refugee camp in Calais, France, known as the Jungle, CRS riot police continued incursions into the camp at night.
Saturday night saw a sustained attack lasting more than three hours, using water cannons, tear gas rounds, rubber bullets and baton charges into the camp permitter. Monday was a smaller action, with officers throwing tear gas grenades into camp and firing tear gas rounds at waist height along one of the main roads.
Charity workers, volunteers and refugees have said they feel the police are using the camp as a training ground, preparing for the worse-case scenario in the lead up to the eviction, which is expected to start from 24 October.
