Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Work con­tin­ued yesterday at the site in Elaionas, near cen­tral Athens, where refugees cur­rently liv­ing in tents in Pe­dion to Areos park are to be moved. More than 50 pre­fab­ri­cated homes had been moved onto the site by yesterday af­ter­noon as engi­neers con­tin­ued to work on con­nec­tions to the elec­tric­ity grid and wa­ter net­work. Many of the struc­tures that will be used to house the refugees from Afghanistan and Syria were used in 1999 as tem­po­rary homes for the vic­tims of an earth­quake. Author­i­ties are aim­ing for the re­cep­tion cen­ter to be ready by Tues­day.
