>> A mass exodus from the so-called Cali Jungle. Hundreds of migrants queuing with all their belongings, having being turfed out of the squalid camp. Some 60 buses are expected to leave on Monday, ferrying the refugees to reception centers across France. They had no choice but to go, told to pack their bags or face arrest.

>> This country problem, but now me go big city look, if me receive house, school, no problem.>> The eviction has so far been smooth. But aid agencies warn the mood could change once demolition begins later this week. The first hint of that came Sunday night, small pockets of migrant, and activist throwing stones, and setting fires, police shooting back teargas.

About 1200 hundred officers on stand by, for the evacuation. At least, six and a half thousand refugees currently live in a ramshackle camp. Many hoping to make it across the border into Briton. France says it's demolishing the shelters on humanitarian grounds. But the fate of some 1,300 unaccompanied children still hangs in the balance.
00:01:08
Authorities say hundreds have been sent to the U.K. in recent days, but aid workers fear others will be overlooked during the demolition.
