Het einde van ‘de jungle’ in 7 desastreuze foto’s

Het tentenkamp in de Franse kustplaats Calais, waarin sinds 2014 honderden vluchtelingen en migranten een onderkomen vonden tijdens hun weg naar Engeland, is volledig ontruimd. De bewoners verzetten zich sinds maandag tegen de ontruiming en deden daarmee de naam van het kamp eer aan.

Boze migranten staken afgelopen nacht verschillende provisorische tenten in brand. Woensdagmiddag waren er opnieuw branden die de laatste vluchtelingen uit het kamp verjaagden. Volgens de lokale autoriteiten is daarmee gisteren een einde gekomen aan de ‘jungle van Calais’, zoals de nederzetting minachtend werd genoemd in de media.
