Greece: At least 10 injured following violent brawl at Moria camp

At least 10 people were injured when a violent brawl broke out between migrants at the Moria camp on the Greek island of Lesbos on Tuesday night. More than 60 people were reportedly involved in the fight. Groups of Afghan and Iraqi nationals became embroiled in the brawl, which saw tents being destroyed and fires started. Riot police was called to the scene. According to Moria camp manager... Еще Giannis Balbakakis, «one big problem we are facing that people do not seem to understand is that lately there have been too many brawls between Arab and Persian speakers; Iraqis and Syrians on the one side and Afghans on the other. Until July, they were directing their anger towards various authorities, now they're fighting against each other.» Around 6,000 refugees currently reside in Lesbos, including some 350 unaccompanied minors. Tensions are high at Moria as resources are being stretched to almost three times the camp's capacity.
