370 persons arrived on Lesvos and 408 on Chios while no arrivals were reported on the islands of Samos.

In the period between 1 to 24 October, 2,771 migrants and refugees arrived on the northern Aegean islands, said authorities.

In the same period, the Turkish Coast Guard announced that it intervened in 47 incidents involving 1,969 migrants and refugees and sent them back to Turkey.
