“It’s unbearable”: Lesbos refugees sleep in the streets after devastating fire | Global development


Plumes of smoke rise above the ashes and twisted metal. In many areas, this is all that is left of the largest refugee camp in Europe.Just a few days ago, Moria camp in Lesbos housed thousands of children and their families. Now all that remains are the smoldering ruins and the jagged outlines of the burnt tents.

Helicopters and small planes buzz over the devastation, trying to fight the remaining fires. The camp is still a powder keg of dry wood, tents and living containers. A young man asks the police if he can access part of the camp to collect his belongings, but a small fire has just broken out and develops. The police shake their heads and tell him to come back tomorrow to check if there is anything left.
