Muslim migrants RIOT in Bulgaria’s largest refugee center


Muslim migrants RIOT in Bulgaria’s largest refugee center

Some 1,500 migrants have clashed with police in Bulgaria’s largest refugee centre, two days after the facility was sealed off following reports of an alleged infection outbreak.

Officials said the claims were false. The Harmanli centre is home to 3,000 people, mostly Afghan refugees.

Protesters threw stones at riot police, who used water cannon to disperse them.

Some 13,000 migrants are still stranded in Bulgaria, the European Union’s poorest country.

In an attempt to prevent illegal crossings, the country built a fence on its border with Turkey and reinforced its border controls.

Residents of the town of Harmanli protested on Sunday, calling for the camp’s closure after local media reported on the alleged existence of diseases there.

Authorities then temporarily sealed off the centre to allow health officials investigate, and banned people from leaving the facility.

“An artificially created tension led to this, following misleading reports that the centre is a hearth of infection,” Petya Parvanova, head of the Bulgarian Refugee Agency, was quoted by Reuters as saying.

Tensions have been high in Europe, particularly in Greece, where tens of thousands of migrants and refugees remain stranded. Last week, an attack on a camp on the island of Chios forced 150 people to flee.

 





One of the pioneers of the Israeli Internet, Zvi was already established as the voice of Israeli internet among international users as early as 1991, which resulted in the Israeli government asking him to lead the famous Jerusalem One project, the very first Israeli Internet network. Zvi Lando was the designer/builder of the first web sites for the Prime Minister's office, the Foreign Ministry, and worked for 13 years with the Jewish Agency, building dozens of projects, including, in 1996, Emet - the first Hebrew web site in history.
