At Least 50 Arrested at Greek Isle Migrant Camp; Refugees Set Tents Afire,Smash Cars,Loot Shops

At least 50 people were arrested today (November 17, 2016) on the Greek Island of Chios after violence at a migrant camp, according to the Euro News website.

Refugees set tents on fire before looting nearby shops, smashing cars, and stealing fireworks to launch at local residents.

The riot was triggered after those inside the Souda camp clashed with supporters of the far-right Golden Dawn Party.

Four people were taken to the hospital as a result of the unrest. Thousands of refugees from the Middle East and Asia -- including the war-torn countries of Syria and Iraq -- remain on several Greek islands, since most European countries refuse to accept them.
