ON THE ISLAND OF LESBOS

Fire destroys refugee camp

Thousands of asylum seekers have moved to a new temporary facility on the Greek island of Lesbos, according to officials, 10 days after a fire destroyed their former camp.

The fire that broke out in Moria on September 9 left more than 12,000 people — most of them refugees from Afghanistan, Syria and various African countries — without shelter, proper sanitation or access to food and water. No-one was hurt in the blaze.

By last Saturday morning (local time), about 9,000 people had been resettled in the new tent camp, set up by authorities at Kara Tepe near the port of Mytilene.

Those entering the temporary camp were registered and tested for COVID-19. At least 214 were placed in quarantine after positive tests.

Traffic was returning to normal on the roads, where thousands of migrants had camped for days after the fire, and stores in the area started reopening.

Recently we marked the 20th anniversary since the Olympic Games were successfully held in Sydney NSW. In the photo, members of the South Australian Greek Community gathered in 2000 at Vicroria square, Adelaide to welcome the Olympic Flame on its way to the Sydney stadium. Amongst others, we recognise, to the left, Elias Mavrogiorgis, Vasilis Pipinias, Evangelos Mermingis (all deceased) and other local community members.(Photo from the Greek Tribune, by the late George Tsamandanis).
