BBC NEWS/Around 13,000 migrants and refugees had been living in squalor in the overcrowded Moria camp, and are desperate to leave the island.

The clashes broke out near a temporary camp built by Greek authorities.

A fire was set there earlier in the day, near a police blockade, and had to be extinguished by firefighters.
A new camp, Kara Tepe, has now been set up.
Police said about 200 people had checked in at the new camp, while dozens – mostly families – queued outside, waiting for hygiene and safety checks.
