A 20-year-old Afghan man has reportedly stabbed and killed a 16-year-old Afghan teenager around dawn on Wednesday on the island of Lesvos, according to authorities.

The incident took place a short distance from the north gate of the Moria Reception and Identification Centre (RIC) on the island of Lesvos.

The 16-year-old was rushed to Mytilene Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead on arrival.

The victim was part of an Afghan family of six, living in a cabin outside the main camp.

Violent fights broke out within the areas for juveniles in Moria after the incident, during which four of the underage asylum-seekers were hurt and taken to hospital, where two of them were judged to have serious injuries.
