France's straggling 'Jungle' migrants await fate

Migrants left behind after the demolition of France’s notorious “Jungle” faced a day of reckoning Friday after spending the night, with official blessing, in a disused part of the camp. Around 100 migrants, including minors, wound up being allowed under police escort to sleep in shelters that remained standing in the former southern section of the slum that was mostly razed in March, a prelude to this week’s clearance operation. After thousands were bussed out over the past two days, the camp next to the northern port of Calais was virtually deserted on Thursday.
