|00:00||On the Greek island of Lesbos, there were clashes|
|00:03||between residents and the police this past Tuesday.|
|00:06||The reason was the planned reception centre for refugees. The demonstrators tried to prevent|
|00:13||construction machinery from being unloaded. The police used teargas. Greece plans to replace|
|00:19||existing refugee camps on several islands with newer ones.|
|00:23||Including Camp Moria on the island of Lesbos.|
|00:26||19,000 people live in and around camp Moria,|
|00:30||which is meant to accommodate just under 3,000 people.|
|00:35||Hundreds of thousands have made their way to Europe from Turkey through the Greek isles.|
|00:40||Following the refugee agreement between the EU and Turkey,|
|00:43||the numbers have decreased, but since last August have been steadily increasing.
