Calais' deputy mayor has told Sky News the French state must take responsibility for relocating up to 1,000 migrants who remain in and around the "Jungle" camp. Several hundred migrants, including many minors, spent the night sleeping in or near the charred wreck of the site, despite French authorities declaring on Wednesday that it was "empty".
More than 100 migrants, including minors, have spent the night sleeping in or near the charred wreck of the Jungle migrant camp, despite French authorities declaring it "empty". As fires were raging across the area at noon on Wednesday, the official in charge of the clearance operation declared it a success.
Migrants have started moving back into the "Jungle", hours after French authorities announced they had finished clearing out the Calais camp. Thousands of migrants were evacuated as multiple large blazes raged across the sprawling camp in northern France. By midday, regional prefect Fabienne Buccio had said operations to clear the camp, which began on Monday, had been completed days earlier than planned.
A group of MPs and peers have signed an open letter calling for urgent steps to be taken before the Calais 'Jungle' is destroyed. The letter to Home Secretary Amber Rudd and the French Ambassador to the UK, Sylvie Bermann, lists a series of measures the 121 signatories say must be implemented prior to the migrant camp being torn down.
Not one person in the town of Amatrice is unaffected by what has happened here; they have all lost something. A relative or a friend. A home or a business. Their possessions or their pet. It is the same in the smaller towns, villages and hamlets dotted across these stunning Umbrian hills.
A tiny island off the west coast of Italy is the unusual but symbolic setting for a summit of three key European leaders today. Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi will welcome the French President Francois Holland and German Chancellor Angela Merkel on the island of Ventotene, 40 miles off the coast of Naples.
Early morning, 17 miles off the Libyan coast in international waters, and the crews with the Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) hear a ping on their ship's radar. Over the subsequent few hours a familiar scenario unfolds. In darkness and on rough Mediterranean waters, the organisation's purpose-built vessel, the Topaz Responder, manoeuvres towards the radar ping.
Teenage African migrants arriving in Europe have told Sky News that they are being sexually molested by Italian men and being extorted by smugglers. In a park outside the train station in the Sicilian town of Catania, we met 16-year old Ermias Haile. He is from Eritrea and arrived in Sicily a few weeks ago.
A British diplomat will be in charge of the EU's policy on the fight against terrorism in a surprise announcement by the President of the European Commission.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
