Unknown assailants early Friday threw firebombs into a migrant camp on the Greek island of Chios, and beat up two volunteers, the state Athens News Agency said.

 

 

According to the agency, two tents at the Souda camp were destroyed and around 150 panic-stricken residents including women and children were forced to flee to safety.

 

A group of 30 assailants subsequently beat up two volunteers helping at the camp, ANA said.

 

Police did not immediately confirm the incident but a local official speaking on condition on anonymity said the island was “seething” over the presence of some 4,000 refugees and migrants.
