Three knife-wielding migrants bundled a woman to the ground and raped her in front of a colleague as a TV crew filmed in the Jungle refugee camp.
The rape victim, an Afghan woman from Paris, was acting as an interpreter to a 42-year-old male reporter.
She was bundled to the ground and attacked as the two other assailants restrained her colleague.
Judicial sources in nearby Boulogne-sur-Mer confirmed that three UK-bound Afghans were responsible for the vicious assault, and were still at large.
Pascal Marconville, the prosecutor in nearby Boulogne-sur-Mer told the Voix du Nord newspaper: ‘The victim was examined by a forensics doctor, who confirmed the rape.
‘Samples have been taken to try to determine the genetic profile of the rapist.’
Mr Marconville confirmed that the three attackers were ‘still at large’, and that everything was being done to try and find them.
There are some 10,000 people currently living in the Jungle, and the vast majority are young men from war torn countries such as Afghanistan, Syria and Eritrea.
