Piraeus Port Authority coast guard officers attended the scene to separate Afghan and Syrian migrants fighting each other.

The news comes on the same day of reporting migrant-on-migrant stabbings in the area.

The incident has occurred just 24 hours after movie star Angelina Jolie was caught in a crush of around 4,000 people wanting to see her visiting migrants in the port of Piraeus.

ekathimerini.com reports:

Three men received non-life threatening stab wounds during a brawl between Afghan refugees at Piraeus port early on Thursday morning.

Port authorities have launched an investigation into the incident that involved around 20 asylum seekers in a passenger terminal that is being used as a refugee shelter.
