Thousands protest after Greek refugee camp burns down

MYTILENE, Greece (AP) — Thousands of refugees and migrants left without shelter on the Greek island of Lesbos after fires destroyed the notoriously overcrowded Moria camp have held a brief protest demanding to be allowed to leave. Some are pleading for help from Germany, a favored destination for many who arrive in Greece from the nearby Turkish coast. More than 12,000 people who had been living in and around Moria were left homeless by fires on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Greek officials said the fires were deliberately set by some of the camp’s residents angered by isolation orders to prevent the spread of the coronavirus after 35 people were found to have been infected.
