Highlight/Context

The EU’s border authority, Frontex, has the following to say about migration into Greece (Eastern Mediterranean) over October:
The number of irregular migrants arriving in Greece in October reached 4,900, a drop of 25% from September 2017.

In the first 10 months of this year, roughly 31,500 migrants reached Greece, a decrease of 82% from the same period of 2016.

Syrians, Iraqis and Afghans accounted for the majority of detections on the Eastern Mediterranean route.




Miami Herald:

Hundreds of protesters have gathered on the Greek island of Lesbos to show their opposition to a government attempt to expand the shelter capacity for migrants and refugees.

The island’s mayor, Spyros Galinos, led the protests on Monday as municipal services were halted in a 24-hour strike.

Authorities on Lesbos and four other eastern Greek islands are demanding that others areas share the burden of hosting migrants camps, which are up to four times over capacity on the five islands.
