Police authorities in Paris say it has reportedly moved out 2,500 migrants who had been living in the north of the city.
They say this is to ease strains caused by human influx to Europe.
The evacuation, which went ahead smoothly, entailed moving out migrants who had been living around an aid centre set up in the Porte de la Chapelle area last November.
Migrants who had been living around an aid centre were taken to other locations in the Paris region.
The Paris regional authority said 2,771 people, including 161 described as “vulnerable”, were taken mainly to school gymnasiums that have become available during the summer holidays.
Charity groups also took part in the operation.
