A local resident of the village of Moria on Lesvos grabbed a rifle and threatened to shoot at refugees and migrants standing outside the hot spot that was burned down on Monday evening.
The incident occurred Wednesday afternoon, when the 84-year-old man appeared with his rifle in front of refugees and migrants hanging around outside the burned camp. He threatened to shoot at them.
In panic, the crowd started to flee in all directions.
Police was called in and detained the local before he made his threat true.
He was a permission to own the rifle.
A legal case against him was formed.
The racist incident occurred just two days after a group of right-extremists attacked four women.
The situation on the island of Lesvos in general and in Moria area in particular is very tense after right-extremists move to the island to incite locals against refugees and migrants.
