Several refugees were injured after riots broke out at Moria refugee centre on Lesbos island, Tuesday, with refugees setting rubbish cans on fire and throwing stones at police, who in turn responded with tear gas. Reports from inside the centre state that the violence was sparked by authorities striking a minor.
The unrest started in a section of the camp where mostly minors are kept before spreading across the entire space. Columns of black smoke could be seen rising from the camp, prompting a deployment of the fire brigade.
