''At least 11 asylum seekers and 8 police officers were injured during clashes in the hot spot of Moria on the island of Lesvos on Wednesday evening. 200 women and children were evacuated in a nearby warehouse'' Keep Talking Greece reports.

''Some 150 refugees and migrants in the Moria refugee camp staged a protest against the EU-Turkey deal that prohibits their relocation. Soon, the protest spread and the angry crowd started to set garbage bins on fire.

Police intervened using teargas and flash grenades, while the Fire Service rushed to the camp to extinguish the fires''.
