Latest ‘migrant’ crisis: Muslims set fire to UK military base in Cyprus

Footage has emerged showing a series of disturbances by migrants who want to leave a UK military base in Cyprus.

It shows a tent on fire, people trying to climb fences and one person shouting “we are people, not animals”.

The 114-strong group landed at RAF Akrotiri base last month and have been at a temporary camp while their asylum applications are processed by Cyprus.

The Ministry of Defence say the migrants – mostly Syrians – are being given three meals a day and shelter.

The footage appears to have been filmed on a smartphone by one of the migrants.
