Tension in Bulgaria's Harmanli Refugee Camp Escalates
Tension in the refugee centre in Harmanli is escalating. Over 2,000 migrants clashed directly with the police and the gendarmerie, reported BNR.
The management of the State Agency for Refugees is also there in an attempt to hold talks with the protesters.
Earlier, the Interior Ministry announced that the situation is under control and that no use of force or auxiliary means had become necessary.
The new building, which was supposed to be opened this week and which was built with European funds, is being demolished. Mattresses, beds, chairs, plastic pipes are being carried out.
Migrants, who are protesting against the temporary restriction to leave the centre, want the border with Serbia to be opened. They have started a third consecutive fire. Everything is covered in black smoke.
Backup units have arrived which, for the moment, are refraining from doing anything against the refugees. A water cannon has been brought, but it has not been used yet. Negotiations are being held but the refugees are implacable.
Dinko from Yambol also known as “the hunter of refugees” has arrived in front of the camp. He announced that 1,000 people from all over the country will arrive at any moment and follow him. He stated that the border must be opened and the refugees must be taken out.

Europe should take out their history books and look at Volume 1, WWI and Volume 2 WWII and you will find the importance of refugees and the controls of migration. Europe should look closely at Austria and the methods they used in DP Camps in Linz-Styr and you will find the dignity used to control Refugee flows.
Thank God, I do not live in Europe and watch the attitude to exterminate refugee dignity.
Merkel has to be dismissed and prosecuted together with leading EU government members and liberal NGO\'s sponsors for inspiring and assisting illegal crossing of borders, human trafficking, endangering the live of children and etch .. and put in jail.. ... inspiring and assisting of illegal immigration is not the way to solve the demographic crisis of Europe..
