More than 1,600 migrants were bussed to new shelters across France. France maintains it is  closing the camp for humanitarian reasons and to end the stateless limbo for thousands of migrants, many of them have made unsuccessful attempts to cross the channel. The camp also has become a glaring symbol of Europe's struggle to cope with a massive influx of migrants and refugees since last year, many from war-torn places such as Syria and Afghanistan.
