Video: Woman attempts to slit her wrists over 'Jungle' eviction

French authorities resumed the demolition of parts of the 'Jungle' refugee camp in Calais, with riot police on-site, Tuesday, overseeing the process. They physically removed an Afghan couple after they had been standing on top of a tent since late Monday in a bid to prevent the clearance. As the police approached the woman, believed to be pregnant, began slitting her wrists – an action she had threatened since the eviction started, according to reports.
