France Begins Clearing “Jungle,” Relocates Migrants to Other Centers

Time: 12:12 p.m. CEST

About 2,500 migrants and refugees would leave the makeshift camp “Jungle” in Calais, the Reuters reports on October 24, as France started to clear the camp. In the past year, the camp was a home to 6,500 migrants, which the Socialist government plans to relocate to 450 centers on different locations in France. Out of 6,500 migrants are about 1.300 unaccompanied child migrants. The children’s destiny is still unclear as Britain and France are negotiating who should take the children who have no family resettled in Britain.

The process of relocation of the migrants from the “Jungle” will divide the population of the camp to register them as families, adults, unaccompanied minors and vulnerable individuals. After medical checks in the reception centers, the people could decide whether they would apply for asylum or return to the country of origin. The authorities assume the evacuation of the camp could last at lest a week. About 1,250 police officer deployed in the camp to maintain the order and prevent the possible protest.
