A second week of demolition was underway Monday in the Calais migrant camp known as the “Jungle” while France’s first international-standard refugee camp was set to open further along the coast.


A group of children tried to offer white roses to the line of riot police holding back migrants and volunteers as workers resumed the dismantling of makeshift shelters in the Calais camp in northern France.


Meanwhile, several kilometers away on the coast, the town of Grande-Synthe was preparing to open France’s first-ever refugee camp to meet international humanitarian stands on Monday, despite official opposition.
