Just met a Syrian migrant who said the European country he wants to go to most of all is Ireland! First time I’ve heard that.

BBC News producer Will Vernon tweets from Lesbos island, Greece where 4,345 people are currently being detained.
Last night at the detention centre in Moria, on Lesbos Island:
Andrew Connolly, for Raw News, reported:
A mass riot has broken out between refugees and police inside the Moria detention centre on the Greek island of Lesbos during the night of April 26.
On Tuesday afternoon, thick, black plumes of smoke could been seen floating above the facility and Raw News witnessed numerous refugees being carried out injured and suffering from tear gas inhalation.
NGO sources inside confirmed that [the] riot started in the wing which detains unaccompanied children, which then intensified after police beat a child, and subsequently used tear gas.

Rioting broke out in Rio de Janeiro during protests against rising public transport fares (and for better public services and working conditions) led by the country’s largest trade union.
A cameraman, Santiago Andrade from Brazilian station Band TV was hit by what was thought to have been a tear gas canister or homemade explosive. He was taken in a critical condition to hospital where he has undergone emergency surgery.

Tuesday afternoon on June 11th 2013, Police fired bullets at RC controlled flying camera during the protests in Taksim square, Istanbul. Police aimed directly at the camera.Unfortunately the last video was not saved properly on the memory card due to the impact of the bullet. The camera and the helicopter are completely broken.Here is the footage from that camera! This footage you are about to see is from the previous flights minutes before the incident.
