A youth was found dead after a large fire erupted on Monday at the infamous refugee and migrant camp of Moria on the island of Lesvos in Greece.

The Greek Fire Brigade said that they had discovered the body of a youth during their firefighting operation.

According to information reported by the local website stonisi, the fire continues to burn down properties inside the camp, and the prevailing strong winds are still preventing the fire service from extinguishing it.

Authorities had not been able to identify what started this new fire in Moria at press time.

The part of the camp that is on fire is where most migrants from African countries are living.

This is a developing story.
