French authorities will use force to evict dwellers of the notorious Jungle slum in Calais, if they refuse to leave their tents, to relocate to purpose-built accommodation. NGOs working in the camp have protested the decision.
The targeted area houses a mosque, a restaurant, a legal aid center, and accommodation for 800 to 1,000 migrants, though NGOs say the actual number of residents, from Africa, the Middle East, and Afghanistan, could be twice as high. It constitutes about 7 hectares, or half of the entire Jungle camp, with inspections set to begin after 8:00pm on Tuesday, and first demolitions expected soon after.
