Red skies above Channel town visible for miles after fight between Afghans and Kurds

The Grande-Synthe immigrant camp near Dunkirk has been destroyed after a fight between Afghan and Kurdish people being homed there – with six people suffering serious knife wounds.

Red skies above the Linière humanitarian camp were visible for miles around and the fires were finally put out by firefighters. This morning the rows of cabins were just heaps of ashes.

Local sources said violence broke out about 19.30 after Afghan immigrants, recently arrived from the Calais immigrant camp, were unhappy that they were living in dormitory accommodation while the Kurds occupied most of the 300 cabins.

The first fires came about 22.30 and by 23.00 the camp was well ablaze with the Grande-Synthe mayor’s office saying firebugs were setting fires row-by-row as firefighters were fighting to save the cabins.

In the panic, all 1,500 immigrants were evacuated but local newspaper La Voix du Nord said some threw stones at firefighters and police at the camp but it was mostly other immigrants who were hit.

The camp was opened last year by Médecins sans Frontiers and Grande-Synthe mairie but Nord prefect Michel Lalande said it was left a “heap of ashes”. There was “no question” of rebuilding the site, and he said: “It cannot be rebuilt.”

Grande-Synthe mayor Damien Carême was out of town and not available for comment.

    Muslim immigrants only bring you troubles, bloodshed and killings to where ever they go or immigrate.
    The last Muslim immigrants that were given kind and warm refuge and hospitality in Ethiopia & Eritrea are now demanding for barbaric Sharia law and hijabes. The Eritrean Muslims are far more arrogant and fanatics to dream about Eritrea becoming an Arab Muslim state with the Arabic language!! In a new free and democratic Eritrea the alien Arabic language and identity will be scrapped and replaced by a local language. The last warning to all Eritreans and Ethiopian friends would be not to trust the Muslims and let them into your homes.

      Kokob, I agree with you not to trust the cancerous moslims of Eritrea or Afghanistan or Kurdish immigrant moslims.
      The poor Europeans are paying a heavy price for trusting and also for letting the cancerous Iraqi/Syrian moslims into their countries.
      As beggar immigrants they should be more civilized and law abiding people.
