Europe’s largest migrant camp, Moria, has been devastated by massive fires that broke out early Wednesday at the overcrowded site on Greece’s Lesbos island.
Greek authorities believe that the fires were started by Moria camp residents expressing “dissatisfaction” with coronavirus-related lockdown measures. The camp has been under lockdown after 35 people tested positive for Covid-19 earlier this week.
The refugee camp is home to an estimated 13,000 people, more than six times its maximum capacity of 2,200 people. More than 4,000 children, including 407 unaccompanied minors, live in the camp, according to the United Nations Refugee Agency.
