According to reports, 35-year-old woman was accompanying a TV crew in the area when she was attacked by the armed men and was raped at knife point.
A search operation is underway to arrest the perpetrators who are believed to be three men and were being kept in the refugee camp, the Jungle refugee camp.
The victim was bundled to the ground and attacked as the two other assailants, who also spoke Pashtun, restrained her colleague, according to MailOnline.
It comes as French authorities are preparing to bulldoze the makeshift camp with refugees spending their final day there today and hours after a Sky News team were also attacked.
According to the paper, the judicial sources in nearby Boulogne-sur-Mer confirmed that three UK-bound Afghans were responsible for the vicious assault, and were still at large.
The rape victim was from Paris and was working with the reporter on a journalistic project, said one of the sources. -KP
