Near the French port city of Calais, a squalid refugee camp known as "the Jungle" has been cleared by police. More than 270 young men — mainly from Afghanistan and Iraq — were detained when the camp was bulldozed Tuesday. For ten years, the camp has been a sore point between Britain and France. Desperate to reach Britain, the immigrants try to hide in trucks and cross the Channel Tunnel.
