Greek authorities arrested 35 migrants on 18 July for public disturbance offences – during the riots, police were forced to use tear gas against protesters who were throwing large stones at them. Muslim rioters also set fire to tents. There are very few Christian asylum seekers at Moria Camp, as most of them flee the island as soon as an opportunity arises.
