Fire has destroyed Greece’s largest migrant camp, the overcrowded Moria facility on the island of Lesbos.
About 25 firefighters with 10 engines battled the flames as migrants were evacuated. Some suffered injuries from smoke exposure.It is unclear how the fires began, with some blaming the migrants and others blaming Greek locals.
Police cordoned off roads leading from the camp to prevent fleeing migrants entering nearby towns.
Thousands are now without accommodation, and authorities are struggling to find them shelter.
The government has declared a four-day state of emergency.German foreign minister Heiko Maas has called the blaze a “humanitarian disaster” and tweeted about “the distribution of refugees among those willing to accept admission in the EU”.
