France to move cautiously on Calais migrant “jungle” camp clearance

France to move cautiously on Calais migrant "jungle" camp clearanceBy Matthias Blamont CALAIS, France (Reuters) – The French government is likely to move cautiously in clearing part of a shanty town outside Calais for migrants trying to reach Britain after it won a legal battle to start dismantling the so-called “jungle”. A judge upheld a government order on Thursday to evict migrants living in the southern part of the camp although a few makeshift buildings of social importance such as a school and a theatre will be left untouched. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said authorities would work with humanitarian organisations to relocate migrants to a nearby park of converted shipping containers or other reception centres around the country.
