    Last week, the French authorities dismantled an illegal camp organised by migrants in the commune of Saint-Denis, in the northern suburbs of Paris.

    Hundreds of people have gathered in Place de la Republique in central Paris demanding accommodation for migrants, after a refugee camp in Saint-Denis was evacuated by police on Tuesday.

    Migrants pitched tents in Saint-Denis and have lived there for months, according to local media reports. Following the evacuation, they set their belongings on fire before leaving the camp.
