The Moria migrant camp, the largest such facility in Europe, was destroyed by a major blaze on Wednesday, leaving nearly 13,000 migrants without shelter. At the moment, there is no official statement on the cause of the fire, but Greek media reported it could have been the result of arson.

A new refugee camp is being built near Kara Tepe on the Greek island of Lesbos after the last one was engulfed in flames earlier this week, forcing the evacuation of the migrants living there.

Last week, the Moria camp was placed under quarantine after an asylum seeker was diagnosed with COVID-19, which led to mass protests on Lesbos.
