Migrants Jump Fences on Calais

“Migrants distrupt tunnel traffic between France and UK,” from Al Jazeera English:

Traffic along the Channel Tunnel connecting Britain and France has been disrupted when dozens of migrants attempted to enter restricted areas of the tunnel in Calais, according to officials.

The disruption on Friday night was the latest in a series of incidents involving some 3,000 migrants, mostly from Africa and the Middle East, who are camped around the northern French port in the hope of reaching Britain.

“From 10:30 pm (20:30 GMT), around 150 migrants attempted to enter the platforms,” a spokesman for the Pas-de-Calais… prefecture in northern France told AFP.
