Greece: Hundreds of migrants still camping in tents on roadside of Lesbos

Migrants and refugees are still camping on the side of the road in makeshift tents on Lesbos Island whilst a new camp is being built. Hundreds of refugees could be seen on Monday with tents set up on the roadside and outside a supermarket. Several appeared to be washing themselves with hosepipes and sleeping under tents on the roadside. Thousands of migrants have been relocated following the fires that broke out at the Moria refugee camp on Wednesday, September 9, burning large parts of it to the ground. The Greek authorities built a new 3,000-capacity tent camp over the weekend. Hundreds have reportedly already been relocated. The Moria migrant camp was the largest in Europe, exceeding almost four times its maximum capacity of 3,100 people, hosting around 13,000 migrants living in poor sanitary conditions.
