Two young refugees, a 20-year old Syrian and a 19-year old Iraqi, climbed on an electricity pillar on Wednesday at the entrance of Moria hotspot on Lesvos, threatening to jump if they were not transported off the island.

The two refugees said they felt they had been trapped on Lesvos for months.

They climbed down after the intervention of some of their compatriots and the help of police negotiators.

On Tuesday, a 19-year old Syrian had also climbed on an electricity pillar to protest a decision keeping him on the island while the rest of his family were transported to the mainland, but was shocked by the current and fell off. He is being hospitalised at Mytilene hospital with burns but out of danger, according to the medical staff.
