TOPSHOT - A French riot police officer gestures next to migrants near the A16 motorway near the site of the Eurotunnel in Coquelles, near Calais, northern France on January 21, 2016.
Approximately 300 migrants have tried to board trucks protected by French police, according to an estimate made by an AFP photographer present at the scene. Clashes already erupted briefly on the night of January 20 at the port bypass Calais between several hundred migrants and security forces, who fired tear gas to restore the situation, according to an AFP correspondent. These incidents occurred after the prefecture of Pas-de-Calais had set an ultimatum which expired early in the afternoon for the last migrants to leave a deforested 100 metre strip of the "Jungle" camp along the ring road for safety reasons. / AFP / PHILIPPE HUGUEN (Photo credit should read PHILIPPE HUGUEN/AFP via Getty Images)
