A two-year-old girl, the child of Iraqi asylum-seekers, was run over and killed by a vehicle in an area known as Agia Ermioni on the island of Chios, shortly before noon on Monday.

According to sources, the vehicle was the property of a non-governmental organisation operating within the Reception and Identification Centre (RIC).

The driver was transporting the family and other families of asylum seekers to the RIC area.

The driver had started reversing without realising that the child was behind the vehicle.

The child was rushed to Chios Hospital, where doctors declared her dead on arrival.
