New struggle for Greece as thousands of refugees land on its coasts

Filed under: ,

More and more refugees are arriving in Greece from Turkey, crossing the Aegean waters on rubber dinghies. Mostly Syrians and Afghani, these people have come to seek protection in Europe, but are welcomed by a slow bureaucratic system close to collapse. Greece's temporary camps for refugees are taking in more than twice the amount of people they could, also hosting them in private housing and other types of shelters. However, most temporary camps can't provide running water, heating systems or proper sanitary facilities. Greece's Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has called for an urgent EU intervention.
