The Cyprus government will be deporting all those who were involved in the violent clashes at the Pournara Reception Centre. This was according to the Cyprus Interior Minister Nicos Nouris said.
Crises had begun after Nigerian and Congolese citizens got into a conflict about whose turn it was to charge their mobile phone.
According to authorities, the Cyprus riot police had stopped the violence at a migrant reception centre after clashes between different nationalities led to a fire outbreak, but not before one person was injured during the disturbance at the Pournara camp outside the capital Nicosia.
Minister Nicos Nouris who visited the migrant centre at the weekend to inquire about the situation after the violent clashes between the asylum seekers had told CNA that the photos of 160 people currently in quarantine had been given to the police after the asylum service identified them.
This was after certain annoyed Nigerian migrants, kept at the Menoyia Immigration Detention Centre in Larnaca, South Cyprus had in September, reportedly set camp tents on fire in an act of protest against the Cyprus authorities for not informing them of the particular date they would be deported to Nigeria.
