A group of far-right activists have reportedly admitted impersonating as police officers to attack and rob refugees in a series of attacks in Calais.
The men proceeded to demand money and steal cash and mobile phones valued at an estimated €4,000 (£3,150), shouting “police!” when anyone attempted to intervene.
They have reportedly admitted the assaults, theft and impersonating police officers, and are awaiting a court hearing in Boulogne-sur-Mer.
It is the latest in a series of reported attacks on refugees across Europe, including a “clean-up” operation by vigilantes in the German city of Cologne that saw at least 11 victims targeted in a single day.
