One Dead, Three Injured After Afghan Migrant Goes on Stabbing Rampage

One Dead, Three Injured After Afghan Migrant Goes on Stabbing Rampage

A 19-year-old migrant from the Ivory Coast has died after being stabbed to death by an Afghan asylum seeker in the notorious Moria migrant camp on the Greek island of Lesbos.

The attack took place at around 2 am on Monday when an Afghan migrant stole a mobile phone belonging to an African migrant.

The 19-year-old Ivory Coast man was stabbed in the chest and abdomen and was taken to a nearby hospital in Mytilene where he later died of his injuries.

The stabbing attack is just the latest bout of violence to take place in the notorious Moria migrant camp, which has been filled over capacity for several years.

In August of last year, The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) called for the Greek government to transfer underage migrants out of the camp after a brawl led to the death of a young resident who was stabbed by a 15-year-old Afghan boy.
