I am promoting this article from the comments because it’s scandalous and we should know about it.
ATHENS, Oct 15 (Reuters) – Hundreds of illegal immigrants held in a detention centre on the Greek island of Lesbos have fallen ill after drinking contaminated water from rusty and mouldy pipes, police said on Wednesday.
Police said hospital staff rushed to provide emergency medication after the weekend incident at the centre, where medical charity Doctors Without Borders (MSF) denounced a “humanitarian crisis” in July.
“Almost all of the immigrants at the detention centre have been poisoned,” a police official, who declined to be named, told Reuters.
“They are in a bad condition, but they can not be transferred to hospital as they are too many and in a bad state,” the official said.
