Moria migrant camp fire: Four Afghans sentenced to 10 years in jail - BBC News

Moria migrant camp fire

A Greek court has sentenced four young Afghan asylum seekers to 10 years in jail each after they were charged with starting fires that destroyed Europe's largest migrant camp last year.

Defence lawyers said the men, who denied the accusations, were found guilty of intentional arson.

The defence described the trial as unfair.

The destruction of the overcrowded Moria camp on the island of Lesbos left nearly 13,000 people without shelter.
