New pictures circulating on social media allege that not everything went smoothly while Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was giving Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann a tour of the Greek island of Lesvos, on Tuesday.
Pictures posted on Facebook by user Saverio Serravezza, depict a Greek police officer allegedly kicking migrants and refugees at the Moria refugee settlement, located in the city of Mitilini, the capital of Lesvos.
Serravezza alleges that while this was going on in the Moria settlement where Afghans, Iraqis and other migrants of non-Syrian descent are staying, Tsipras and Faymann were at the Kara Tepe reception centre, where Syrian refugees were staying. Apparently the Kara Tepe center was cleaned and well-organized.
An official probe into these allegations was launched on Thursday, according to Greek media reports.
