Calais (France) migrant camp on fire tonight
Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 13, 2015
I’m only seeing this news on the UK Mirror so far…..
Update: Daily Mail says it was an electrical fire unrelated to Paris slaughter (almost an unbelievable coincidence). By the way, if you are a new reader and wonder why there is a huge migrant camp packed with Middle Easterners and Africans at Calais, those are all supposed ‘asylum seekers’ who aren’t asking for asylum in France because they want asylum in the UK where they think the welfare goodies are better. Thus the many-years-long stalemate.
And, it isn’t clear if it is a result of the attacks in Paris by Islamic terrorists.
Fire has reportedly broken out at the ‘jungle’ refugee camp in the port of Calais in the hours following the terror attacks in Paris.
At around 11pm volunteers at the camp began sharing pictures of the blaze on social media.
And soon after an anti-migrant group known as ‘The Angry of Calais’ posted videos of the inferno on Facebook.
One video appears to show emergency services vehicles arriving at the camp, which houses around 6,000 migrants – mainly young men from Syria and North Africa.
Is the European civil war here already?
