Tear gas attack on the jungle
Early this afternoon there was a traffic jam on the motorway near the jungle. Many people went there to try and get into the lorries. The police reacted by pushing them back in the jungle with use of batons and spray, and they fired tear gas on the jungle itself. At least 10 salvos of tear gas were fired indiscriminately into jungle near the part of the camp where many Eritrean women live, there are also children in that part of the jungle. People fought back with stones. The police are using intense violence to push people back into the jungle and prevent people from exiting. They also flew a drone over the jungle during the clashes to watch the people. One person is currently in hospital also having been shot in the stomach with a rubber bullet. Video here.
