The fire broke out in a container of the camp where the family was living. The reason for the fire is unknown, although according to officially unconfirmed reports, it was a defected lught bulb that exploded and caused the fire. At least 5 people were injured, others suffered from respiratory problems due to the thick smoke. With a capacity of 3,000, the hot spot of Moria is currently hosting 12,000 refugees, migrants and asylum seekers who live in inhumane circumstances.
"Today's incident at the refugee camp of Moria, which resulted in the sad event of the death of a woman and a baby, is another tragic consequence of the barbarity that refugees and migrants are living in these modern hellholes. It clearly demonstrates that the solution is only one.
The double entrapment of refugees and migrants must stop and all hotspots in the islands and (mainland) Greece must close down. They (refugees and migrants) must be transported to decent accomodations centers of mainland Greece, where their applications will be examined and they will be free to go to the countries of their actual destination.
The government of ND, as well as the one of SYRIZA, bear huge responsibilities, because they support the inhumane and dangerous EU-Turkey agreement which entraps refugees and migrantgs in the islands and the country."
