Calais ‘Jungle’: Hundreds of migrants leave as France begins clearing camp
CALAIS, France -- French authorities began clearing the "Jungle" refugee camp on Monday, busing out more than 1,000 people by the afternoon as the country readies to raze the patch of wasteland where thousands have made temporary homes. An old hangar in the port city of Calais was converted into a processing center for between 6,000 and 10,000 migrants. Authorities offered them two choices -- stay in France or go back to their country of origin.
