Valetta, Malta - At least one person was injured Monday during clashes at a migrant detention centre in Malta, officials said.
An undisclosed number of would-be immigrants fled from the centre during the disturbances, in which rioters also started several fires, the officials said. Reporters saw one detainee being carried toward a waiting ambulance. Information on the person's condition was not immediately available.
The two hour-long rampage was brought under control following the intervention of riot police backed by military reinforcements, officials said.
