Lesbos migrant camp fire leaves families sleeping on the streets

The Greek authorities have opened a temporary tent city for some of the thousands of people left homeless when fire destroyed the Moria refugee camp on Lesbos.

Officials insisted that everyone who needed shelter would be rehoused by the end of the week.

Families have been sleeping out in the open since the blaze – but many refused to enter the new facility, demanding better living conditions – or to be allowed asylum in other EU countries.
