There have been accusations that the police hit an underage protestor yet what information there is at the moment is inconclusive. It is certainly worth noting that protests and minor incidents have been reported to happen in the past yet today's protests were certainly the most aggressive.

A shipping container was set to fire inside the camp and the refugees started throwing stones against the riot police; it was then that the police deployed what is reported as “copious” amounts of tear-gas. When other fires broke, the police and those working in the camp left it while police does not allow helpers and volunteers to enter the premises.
The riot police have been attempting to enter the camp through the back, yet the refugees resist by stone throwing. Firefighters are also attempting to put the fires out.
