Police arrest 24 after brawl at migrant detention camp

Police on Monday arrested 24 people at a migrant detention center in Corinth after a group of inmates began to move their beds into the exercise yard to protest the lack of warm water at the former military base’s showers. Police used chemicals to break up the protest.

The arrested immigrants were expected to face a prosecutor later in the day.
