French court rejects bid to halt Calais camp demolition

A group of French charities failed Tuesday in a last-ditch legal bid to block the razing of the so-called "Jungle" migrant camp in the northern town of Calais. A court in the nearby city of Lille rejected their appeal which claimed that dismantling the camp was "an attack on the fundamental rights" of the migrants there, mostly Iraqis, Afghans and Sudanese. The court ruled that the evacuation was intended to stop the "inhumane and degrading" treatment of people in the squalid camp by moving them to reception centres around the country.
