Over 50 Child Refugees Arrive in UK Following Calais Camp Closure
MOSCOW (Sputnik) Migrants in masks threw rocks and  gas canisters, while police used tear gas to suppress the night riot in the camp, the Daily Star Sunday reported.

According to the media outlet, up to 12,000 policeman will enter the camp to clear the territory tomorrow.

The clashes are supposed to be headed by the left-wing UK protesters, dissatisfied with the government decision to accept children refugees, the newspaper said.

Since Monday, the United Kingdom has been accepting minors from the Calais Camp to reunite with their relatives.

The remaining part of the jungle camp is to be closed before the end of October, after the main section was dismantled in March. The demolition set to begin on October 24.
