107 migrants arrested in Malta for torching cars and injuring a police officer

107 migrants have been arrested after five staff cars and buildings were set ablaze at a holding center in Malta.

The fires left sections of the buildings which migrants stay in destroyed and one policeman injured.

Witnesses say that on Sunday night, violent migrants took control of part the Hal Far reception center, a former British army barracks close to the Malta International Airport, setting fire to several rooms as well as cars belonging to staff, Reuters reports.

A police spokesperson has said the situation was brought back under control in the early hours of Monday morning.

Although it isn’t exactly clear why the violence erupted, some witnesses have said that the riots began after police barred some migrants from entering the center.
