French officials have begun dismantling a portion of a large migrant camp in the port city of Calais. Authorities were forced to put out a fire at a makeshift shelter and riot police were on hand after migrants began throwing stones inside the camp known as the Jungle. The government plans to relocate migrants to reception centers.
