Riots break out at Moria refugee camp in Lesvos Island

A mass riot has broken out between refugees and police inside the Moria detention centre on the Greek island of Lesbos during the night of April 26. On Tuesday afternoon, thick, black plumes of smoke could been seen floating above the facility and Raw News witnessed numerous refugees being carried out injured and suffering from tear gas inhalation. NGO sources inside confirmed that riot started in the wing which detains unaccompanied children, which then intensified after police beat a child, and subsequently used tear gas. NGOs have been evacuated from the site and riot police are currently patrolling the perimeter.
