Friday, 18 September 2020_Dragging bags and bins full of belongings, migrants moved towards a new temporary tent camp on Greece's Lesbos on Friday (September 18), more than a week after a fire razed the country's biggest migrant camp, where they had been staying.

Hundreds of refugees move toward new Lesbos campPolice oversaw the operation, which was launched early on Thursday (September 17) morning.

The fire that gutted the Moria facility a week ago left over 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.

The new temporary tent camp at Kara Tepe, near the island's port of Mytilene, is ready to take in at least 8,000 people, but officials have said that some of the migrants were reluctant to move there as they hoped to leave the island.
