France: Kurdish refugees voice fear of alleged IS presence in Calais

Kurdish refugees expressed their fears over allegations that members of the so-called Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) had infiltrated Calais migrant camp, Sunday, following Friday's Paris attacks and the subsequent blaze that broke out at the Calais site.

As a large clean-up operation was under way at the migrant camp, inhabitants in the 'Jungle' still reportedly felt nervous. While local authorities have denied the report, including Calais' deputy mayor Phillipe Mignonet, there has been speculation that the attack was aimed at refugees in relation to the attacks on the French capital on Friday night.

One of the Kurdish men who is being forced to camp out at the shelter in northern France said that if the IS came to France, "we [inhabitants] don't want to stay here," adding that it was better to find a more secure place to stay.

The fire broke out amid multiple attacks on Paris, where over 150 people are feared to have been killed. According to aid workers operating in the camp extra police protection has been provided to the refugees in Calais, in the wake of the attacks.

Thousands of migrants and refugees have settled in camps in Calais over the past year, waiting for a chance to cross the English Channel into the United Kingdom. Dozens of refugees attempting to make the trip died over the summer as asylum seeker numbers swelled during the migrant crisis.
