The French police cleared a migrant camp in the center of Paris on Monday evening. Tear gas was used for this.
The camp on the Place de la Republique was set up on Monday, after a large tent camp of migrants in Paris had already been evacuated last week. With the new camp in the center of the French capital, several aid organizations wanted to denounce the lack of shelter places. But the police quickly dismantled the camp with a heavy hand.
The French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin has said in a response that the images circulating of the eviction are shocking. The minister has requested a report from the police.
A few journalists and activists are accusing via social media that they too have been confronted with police brutality.
