    ATHENS: Riot police were dispatched on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) to put down a riot at Greece’s main migrant detention camp where detainees hurled stones at officers and set fire to their living quarters. Television footage showed fires blazing at the Amygdaleza detention camp outside Athens, where some 1,200 mainly Asian migrants are kept under police guard. The police spokesman said rioting began when the detainees were told that their maximum stay in the camp would be extended to 18 months from a year previously.
