Migration Crisis 2.0: Greece at a breaking point

A drastic rise in the number of migrant arrivals in the last few weeks has brought a facility on the Greek island of Lesbos to the brink of collapse and has forced the government to take immediate action.

As a result of the overcrowding and deteriorating conditions, Greece has started to move hundreds of ‘asylum seekers’ from its migrant camp on the island of Lesbos to its mainland.

On Monday, close to 1,500 migrants were moved from the Moria reception center on Lesbos to migrant facilities in Thessaloniki, Athens News Agency reports.

Moria, Europe’s largest migrant camp, has a carrying capacity of about 3,000 people.
