Fire at Another Migrant Camp on Greek Island of Lesvos

Fire broke out at a Greek asylum camp on the same day that migrants were convicted of burning down another refugee center on the island.

Thousands of migrants have been living in a tent city called Mavrovouni (alternately known as Kara Tepe) on the island of Lesvos after the notorious Moria camp was burned down in a series of arson attacks in September.

On Tuesday, a blaze broke out at Mavrovouni which required intervention by the fire service to put out.

While authorities claim an electrical short circuit may have sparked the fire, there is speculation the migrants may have set the blaze themselves.

Two tents were reportedly destroyed in the blaze.

Migrants setting fire to asylum centers in their host countries has become a common tactic used to force relocation, as Infowars Europe has often reported.

On the same day as the Mavrovouni fire, two migrants from Afghanistan were sentenced to five years in prison for their roles in burning down the massive Moria camp where some 20,000 migrants had been living at the time.

Four other migrants are expected to stand trial for the catastrophic arson spree.

Migrants have been suspected or charged in recent fires at other asylum camps in Greece, Bosnia, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
