Fire has destroyed Greece’s largest migrant camp, the overcrowded Moria facility on the island of Lesbos.
About 25 firefighters with 10 engines battled the flames as migrants were evacuated. Some suffered injuries from smoke exposure.
Reports say migrants protesting against coronavirus rules may have started the fire, though this is unconfirmed.
Police blocked migrants heading to the port town of Mytilene, leaving them stuck on the road.
Moria is home to nearly 13,000 people, more than four times the number it can officially hold.
Lesbos deputy governor Aris Hatzikomninos reportedly told local radio the camp had been “completely destroyed”. Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is holding an emergency meeting on the fire.
The EU has agreed to finance the transfer of 400 unaccompanied teenagers and children to the mainland and their accommodation, according to EU home affairs commissioner Ylva Johansson.
“The safety and shelter of all people in Moria is a priority,” she tweet.
