“I was standing metres away and there was screaming and bottles being thrown which led to dozens of people running away in fear.

“I’m told it was a man who attacked a TV cameraman outside this relief centre which is where people are waiting to be informed about their missing relatives.

“The man in question had apparently been told he’d lost family members in the fire and he was angry to be filmed by the press.

“This then escalated and others got involved in the fight.”
