“Calais truckers fear for their lives as migrants armed with BASEBALL BATS attack them,” by Alix Culbertson, Express, August 24, 2016:
A THRONG of violent armed migrants have been filmed holding up a UK-bound lorry as they battled to scramble onboard vehicles in Calais.

During the film, terrorists are advised they do not require sophisticated weaponry or explosives to launch an attack.
Instead, they are told to equip themselves with baseball bats, power drills, screw drivers and even hypodermic syringes.
According to PJ Media, the new video – which lasts for almost 20 minutes – concentrates on the United States and France….
