Camp Housing Hundreds Of Migrants In Northern France Destroyed To Fire

A camp housing one thousand five hundred migrants in northern France has been destroyed in a fire that officials said began during a fight between Afghans and Kurds.

At least ten people were injured when the fire tore through closely-packed huts at the Grande-Synthe camp, near the port of Dunkirk.

Last month officials said the camp would be dismantled because of unrest.

The population of the Grande-Synthe camp has grown since last October’s destruction of the Jungle camp near Calais, about forty kilometers away. But the arrival of more Afghans increased tensions with Kurds living in the camp.

However, the migrants have been evacuated and will be sent to emergency accommodation, with two gymnasiums nearby already made available
