Refugees Await Registration in a Camp...
Metylene, Lesbos

Refugees, who succeed to cross the maritime border between Turkey and Greece are being brought to the Moria Camp near the city of Mitylene, on the island of Lesbos, where the European border agency Frontex identify and screen them, before they may go to the Greek mainland. 

Moria Camp reminds us of a war zone. People are queuing, often for many days. They lie in the mud and sleep in tents because there is not enough space in the shelters. Human rights activists call the camp “Europe's shame”.
