Violent clashes erupted after protesters attacked a military camp near Pagani village on Lesbos island on Wednesday evening, where riot police squads that were deployed to the island in response to the protests against the announced migrant camps are stationed.
Footage shows the intensity of the clashes, with hundreds of rioters hurling stones and flares at policemen on the other side of the camp... Еще's entrance.
Protests against the Greek government over the creation of new centres for migrants have been taking places across the north-eastern Aegean islands, including Chios and Samos since Tuesday.
The refugee crowding in the Greek camps had temporarily eased following a deal between the EU and Turkey but has worsened in recent months. With 74,613 arrivals in 2019, according to the UNHCR, Greek islands continue to be the main entry point for illegal immigration in the EU.
