Reuters provides in-depth look at day in life of the ‘Jungle’ migrants of Calais

Reuters provided an in-depth look at a day in the life of the 3,000 inhabitants of the “Jungle,” a shanty town on France’s northern coast, where many of the largely African, Middle Eastern and Central Asian occupants sneak into the undersea tunnel at night hoping to access a new life in Britain. A few make it. But the vast majority face another day living with the squalor, disease and ever-present threat of violence in a place that is the latest symbol of Europe’s failure to manage migration.
