Migrant Camp Torn Down at France-Italy Border

Benjamin Haas/iStock/Thinkstock(VENTIMIGLIA, Italy) – Police tore down the first migrant camp to go up in Europe early Wednesday morning.

Bulldozers moved in, sweeping away the tents and the few personal possessions of the migrants living in the border town of Ventimiglia.

The camp was set up there earlier this summer, when France started restricting the entry of those seeking asylum.

About 50 migrants and Italian activists took refuge in the nearby coastal rocks.
