The protest, which lasted for an hour, was organized by Kurdish migrants from the Diavati center in the western suburbs of Thessaloniki, causing a big traffic jam, Tanjug said, citing AP.

The capacity of the camp is 750 people, but it currently accommodates 1,850 migrants who came to Greece from Turkey.

As reported, the newly arrived migrants sleep in tents and on the floor.
