    More violence has broken out at the refugee hotspot of Moria on the Greek island of Lesvos.

    According to police reports, 19 people were arrested after fighting erupted at the overcrowded facility.

    Eight people were injured, according to an Associated Press report, which also cited police sources saying three tents were set on fire during the disturbances.

    Monday night’s violence, which was broken up by Greek police, is the latest in a series of clashes among refugees and migrants at Moria.

    In late May, fights at Moria between Kurdish and Arab asylum seekers left six people injured.
