Violent clashes at Calais migrant camp

Forty people have been injured when violent clashes broke out between Afghan and Sudanese migrants at a makeshift refugee camp in Calais, France. Between 300 and 400 migrants began fighting on Friday afternoon near a food distribution point. During the skirmish, makeshift huts were set on fire, but firefighters rapidly extinguished the blaze. A police enquiry is underway to determine the cause of the incident which at present is unknown. Official figures put the number of migrants in the camp at just under 4,000 but aid organizations estimate that the actual number is much higher.
