Migrants moved from illegal campsite

Migrants moved from illegal campsite - French police have started moving migrants from an illegal campsite in northern Paris' Porte d'Aubervilliers. The operation was launched shortly before 7 a.m. on Thursday and managed to move 500 out of the 2,000 people sleeping there in tents and improvised shelters. Local police said in a statement that this operation did not consist of "dismantling" the illegal camp, rather they are placing vulnerable people such as families, isolated women and children into a safer place to "ensure their security."
