Video: Calais migrants in limbo

Many illegal migrants remain in Calais despite the recent closure of their makeshift camp.

    It has been two weeks since police shut down a makeshift camp in Calais, known as The Jungle, that housed thousands of illegal migrants.

    The French government had hoped shutting down the camp would send a strong message to people-smugglers.

    But, as Al Jazeera's Hamish Macdonald found, many of the migrants are still in the port and living in a state of limbo.
