Shots fired at planned migrant centre in France

French police were investigating Wednesday after shots were fired at a building set to host migrants evicted from the squalid “Jungle” camp in Calais. The gunshots, fired Tuesday night, hit the facade of a holiday camp building in Saint-Brevin on the northwestern French coast, police told AFP. The building is being converted into a migrant hostel and is expecting to host 70 people evicted from the Jungle camp, which President Francois Hollande has vowed will be dismantled by the end of 2016.
