Two refugees injured in protests at detention facility

Two refugees at a detention facility in Drahonice in northwestern Bohemia harmed themselves and one tried to attack a guard on Wednesday, the spokeswoman for the foreign police, Kateřina Rendlová, told the Czech News Agency. One of the men had to be taken to hospital. More than 40 detainees, most of whom are from Iran, launched protests on Tuesday evening over the fact they were allegedly being treated like prisoners and because they feared being deported to their country of origin.
