Hundreds of people were cleared from makeshift camps in the French capital. The operation was the largest of its kind in over a year and comes after Macron's government vowed to "take back control" of immigration.
Police dismantled two makeshift migrant camps in northeast Paris on Thursday, a day after French President Emmanuel Macron's government vowed to clear all tent camps in the capital by the end of the year.
"1,606 people were evacuated and the site is now freed of all its occupants," police Prefect Didier Lallement told reporters.
Lallement said he would not allow the camps to be re-established, with police threatening to send those who return to the sites into detention centers.
Around 600 police officers were involved in the operation, while migrants were bused to gym halls for temporary accommodation, reported public broadcaster FranceInfo.
