    One of Paris’ most popular arrondissements turned into a battleground early this morning as asylum seekers attacked each other in shocking scenes.

    Residents in the area are unhappy about their neighbourhood becoming too violent and dangerous, as reports of muggings are on the increase. The eyesore, the British daily Express reported, is ruining their businesses and making life a “living hell” they say.

    Stalingrad’s squalid migrant camp has popped up in the wake of the demolition of the Jungle in Calais.

    The French daily Le Figaro also reported that locals in the Stalingrad area are now living in fear. Parisians complain that the asylum seekers won’t “respect the law” and “make no effort to integrate into French society”.

    But on Wednesday the area around Stalingrad Metro station became a scene from a nightmare as rival gangs of migrants set upon each other. The asylum seekers wielded makeshift clubs to bludgeon each other as horrified Parisians looked on.

    More than 2 500 migrants are now living in the makeshift camp. The stench of urine, faeces, and rubbish has putrified the air around the insalubrious sqatters.

    It is not known what sparked the early morning skirmishes, but rival gangs of people smugglers believed to be behind the violent brawls that frequently rocked Calais, could have been responsible.

    Despite the gratuitous violence, a pro-migrant rally is nevertheless being organised by open border enthusiasts to take place at the camp on Wednesday evening.

    The once peaceful arrondissement, Paris’ 10th district, used to be a popular area with tourists who frequented the many quaint restaurants and bars, but with the arrival of the refugee squatters, the accompanying squalor and violence have brought street life to a virtual standstill.

    After the demolition of the Jungle, the attempts of thousands of migrants to reach Britain have been foiled. They have now moved to Paris instead.

    Most come from Sudan, Libya, Afghanistan, and Eritrea, and they have pitched their small tents under the Metro station, sleeping on cardboards.

    While French police have tried on many occasions to chase the migrants away, they simply keep coming back.
