🇫🇷 Calais: Gun battle over food leaves five shot

Five people were shot, with four in a serious condition in hospital, in a fight between Eritreans and Afghans over handouts of food.

Police say 100 Afghan and 30 Eritrean refugees fought for nearly two hours on the outskirts of the city. They were at a charity food handout when gunfire triggered the clashes.

Police are searching for an Afghan man in connection with the shooting.
