French judge considers eviction delay at Calais Jungle camp

Refugees from all over the world have sought sanctuary in the so-called 'Jungle' camp in Calais, France. They're waiting to hear if a judge will approve a government plan to demolish part of the camp. That decision is expected Thursday.

Charity groups say the future of more than 34,000 people hangs in the balance, as a court decides whether to demolish this refugee camp. Hundreds of unaccompanied children are among them.

Most traveled from Afghanistan, Iraq or Syria, some are as young as ten.
