Clashes as deadly fire strikes Greek migrant camp

At least one person was killed, emergency services said, at the Moria refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesbos, close to Turkey.

There were clashes with police as smoke rose over the camp, which currently houses 12,000 people in overcrowded conditions.

One burned body was taken to the island's capital for identification.

Police said they were not immediately able to reach an area of containers where there were unconfirmed reports of another burned body.

There has been a resurgence of migrant and refugee flows to Greece in recent weeks from neighboring Turkey.

More than 9,000 people arrived in August, the highest number in the three years since the European Union and Ankara implemented a deal to shut off the Aegean migrant route.
