BREAKING NEWS: Thousands of migrants flee Greek refugee camp ‘after setting fire to it’


Around 4,000 asylum seekers have escaped the camp in the Aegean island of Lesbos.

The blaze at the Moria camp has left a trail of destruction including damaged tents and housing units.

Police sources claimed a number of migrants had begun the blaze which ripped through the facility.

Crowding and long delays in the processing of asylum requests has repeatedly caused simmering tensions at Moria.

    They burnt it down, then not our problem to provide new tents. Ship them a mile off the syrian coast and let them swim the rest of the way home.

      Let the throwing each other off the roof party commence.

    How about a total lack of respect, civility and gratitude as a reason for the “simmering tensions at Moria”. How about an absolutely backward, belligerent culture that’s so primitive violence is its only possible manifestation. How about an undeserved sense of entitlement. Nah, crowding and long delays.

    Good they’re on an island so rounding up the escapees. Those apprehended get put on a boat an sent back to Syria or Libya let’stand make it a lottery.

    And the Greeks need to blockade the island so no more boats. Sad that the Christians will suffer but then the Greeks could scoured the refugee camps and bring good all text persecuted minorities. They’ll integrate far better

    yes, they burnt it down so they can sort it out. Winter is coming and these muppets should not expect the Greek authorities to offer them any more help.
