"The dismantling of the 'Jungle' migrant camp in Calais has begun as its inhabitants leave by coach for other parts of France. A group of workers started to demolish unoccupied tents and shacks by hand, according to reporters at the scene. About 2,000 migrants left voluntarily on Monday, and hundreds more have followed on day two of the clearance. The Jungle has become a key symbol of Europe's migration crisis, housing some 7,000 residents in squalid conditions." (10/25/16)
