France Breaks Up Afghan Migrant Camps

Thursday, September 24, 2009

The northern French town of Calais is known as a crossing point into England; hopeful immigrants to Britain have frequently created makeshift camps while waiting to cross the border into England. But this week French police cleared out one camp known as "the jungle," where hundreds of illegal migrants, mainly from Afghanistan, had been making their home in unsanitary conditions. Emma Jane Kirby, the BBC's Paris correspondent, was there and joins us with the story.
