Published on February 4, 2020 by

Greek police fired tear gas to disperse migrants and refugees protesting conditions in migrant camps on the island of Lesbos, Monday, February 3.

Violence broke out after hundreds of people marched to the main town of Mytilene from the congested camps.

This marks the second protest of its kind in the past two weeks on Lesbos.

A government plan to transfer the migrants off the islands has been underway, but migrant residents are frustrated by the slow pace of the movement.
