Tensions remain high after refugee riots in Lesvos

On the island of Lesbos, one of the European refugee crisis epicentres, tensions are escalating to dangerous levels. Tuesday, April 26, saw some of the worst rioting in recent memory between refugees and police at the Moria detention centre. Fires, ransacking and multiple injuries were reported as frustrated detainees, including unaccompanied children, threw stones at police who responded with beatings and tear gas. Emmanouil Chatzichalkias, a local lawyer, has made it his mission to act as a negotiator between the refugees and police, and to fight for improved living conditions and access to legal aid. We followed him on his mission.
