Paris evac­u­ates 2,800 mi­grants

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Paris au­thor­i­ties evac­u­ated nearly 2,800 mi­grants on Fri­day from ever-ex­pand­ing makeshift street camps, as Europe con­tends with an up­surge in new ar­rivals cross­ing the Mediter­ranean. In heavy sum­mer heat, groups of pri­mar­ily African men and a few fam­i­lies lined up to board buses with a mix­ture of re­lief and ap­pre­hen­sion. “We Need Dig­nity” read a hand­writ­ten sign next to a mattress stretched across cob­ble­stones and sur­rounded by lit­ter.
