  • BBC News published this video item, entitled “Lesbos: Greek police move migrants to new camp after Moria fire – BBC News” – below is their description.

    Police on the Greek island of Lesbos are moving thousands of migrants and refugees from the fire-gutted Moria camp to a new tent city nearby. Seventy female officers in protective suits were flown in to organise the transfer of women and children to the temporary Kara Tepe camp. On Wednesday four Afghan asylum seekers were charged with starting the fire that destroyed Moria last week. A government official said 1,800 had moved into Kara Tepe by early Thursday. But many migrants and refugees remain reluctant to stay on Lesbos, as Moria was overcrowded and squalid. They hope to go elsewhere in Europe, especially Germany. #BBCOS #BBCOutsideSource
