On the Greek island of Samos in a refugee camp there was a mass brawl between immigrants from Syria and Afghanistan.
This is #Samos #refugee camp right now: A huge fire started. More than 6000 people live there, thousands of children. The camp is crazy overcrowded, the living conditions are awful & unhuman. All this just happens after 2 people died in Moria camp a few weeks ago. #opentheislands pic.twitter.com/OFmaSAdp1b

Police used tear gas to disperse the scuffle. During the riots, the refugees staged an arson attack. The inhabitants of the camp were evacuated.
