Police open fire on charging migrant car in Calais

French police opened fire Saturday on a car carrying migrants near the port of Calais as it sped toward a group of officers trying to halt it for a check, authorities said. None of the nine migrants aboard the vehicle was wounded, but the car hit one of the officers and injured his knee. Calais is a key jumping off point for migrants seeking to break into Britain-bound trucks or pay smugglers to help them get across the Channel. Source TheLocal
