Police clear out 1,000 migrants from squalid Paris camp

Police halted road traffic on a major crossroads in the north of the city in order to gain access to the camp, where a fight between migrants last month left several injured.
About 350 police were involved in the operation along with some 100 municipal employees and staff from humanitarian groups.
“The government will take us into houses. I don’t know where but it’s fine,” said Said, who said he had been sleeping outside for a month. “For some, it’s been three months or more.”
Last month, a huge fire gutted one of France’s biggest migrant camps, housing 1,500 people near the northern French port of Dunkirk, which started after a brawl involving hundreds of Afghans and Kurds.
Europe has faced its biggest migrant crisis since World War II over the last few years as millions of people have fled war and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia.
France has welcomed only a fraction of the newcomers.
