Calais migrants divided over future as camp winds down


CALAIS, France: As France prepares to close down the squalid ‘Jungle’ migrant camp in the northern port of Calais, Amjad from Pakistan can’t wait to get away. “That’s six months they have been telling us that the ‘Jungle’ is done with… but it never ends,” he told AFP. “Everyone here knows that they will soon have to leave and are wondering what they are going to do,” he said. “Me, I’ll take the train to Paris.” President Francois Hollande announced during a visit to Calais last week that the camp would be dismantled by the end of the year.
