French Police evacuate over a thousand migrants from Grande-Synthe camp in Dunkirk in the north of France this week. The Muslim illegal migrants were living inside and outside a gymnasium.

The Mayor of Grande-Synthe, Martial Beyaert, said that the dismantling of the migrant camp was “planned and necessary.” “It is a gym where there were 250 people inside and where there were more than a thousand people on the outskirts, who clearly lived in completely undignified conditions,” he stated. The evacuation of the migrants was ordered by a court on September 4, reportedly following local complaints.
