Police evacuated more than one thousand people from a makeshift migrant camp near a Paris metro station Monday, the third time the camp has been cleared in as many months.Although only around 500 people had been counted at the camp the night before, police said around 1,350 people had gathered there Monday to be re-located to accommodation centers, suggesting that migrants from other parts of Paris had swelled their numbers.Nearly 80,000 people applied for asylum in France in 2015, but it has been affected less than its European neighbors by the mass influx of migrants over the last 18 months.
