Excavators piled up remains of sheds that were formerly occupied by eco-activists, as police cleared the alternative ‘Zone a Defendre’ (Z.A.D./Zone to Defend) near Notre-Dame-Des-Landes on Monday.

The evacuation came one day after Prime Minister Edouard Philippe confirmed an eviction will take place in the coming days. In the early morning hours, clashes erupted between riot police and the squatters who resisted the order to leave the abandoned airport site.
