Tensions remain high at the Moria refugee camp on the Greek Island of Lesbos, following violent clashes between Arab and Kurdish asylum seekers on Friday.

Greek authorities confirmed reports about confrontations between Arab and Kurdish migrants, but at the same time they refuted news that at least three Kurds had been killed and dozens injured. 

In the wake of Friday's conflict, hundreds of Kurds are believed to have left the camp to another location for security reasons.
