Greek island mayor warns of violence over migrant plan

Kos policemen try to disperse hundreds of migrants by spraying them with fire extinguishers during a gathering for a registration procedure on August 11, 2015The mayor of the Greek island of Kos on Sunday called on the government to abandon its plans to build a migrant registration centre as demanded by the EU, warning that local opposition could lead to “uncontrollable” protests. “There is a present danger that we will mourn victims and be led to uncontrollable situations,” Kos mayor Yiorgos Kyritsis said in a letter to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, made public by the state agency ANA. Three locals were hurt this week in a scuffle with riot police near the area chosen to build the migrant centre, or hotspot, including a journalist covering the protest, who was later detained.
