Police remove over 1,600 migrants from Paris tent camps

Paris: Paris police cleared two migrant camps in northern Paris and the inner suburb of Saint Denis on Thursday morning.
The operation came a day after Interior Minister Christophe Castaner promised to remove migrants from informal camps that have sprung up in the capital by the end of the year.
Police tweeted that 1,606 people in total had been cleared from the camps. The migrants were bussed to gym halls in the region for temporary accommodation, broadcaster FranceInfo reported.
Paris deputy mayor Dominique Versini told FranceInfo that hundreds of those in the camps had made themselves scarce beforehand because their legal situation meant they didn’t want to go to an official shelter. (DPA)
