Field of bro­ken dreams

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Refugees walk through a field in Idomeni, north­ern Greece, to reach the For­mer Yu­goslav Re­pub­lic of Mace­do­nia, from where they ex­pect to board trains head­ing fur­ther north into Europe. Tens of thou­sands of refugees, mostly Syr­i­ans, have made this jour­ney af­ter ar­riv­ing on Greece’s eastern Aegean is­lands dur­ing the sum­mer. The refugees are trans­ported from the is­lands, par­tic­u­larly Kos and Lesvos, to Athens by ferry boats char­tered by the gov­ern­ment. More than 2,100 refugees ar­rived in Pi­raeus on Satur­day night on board the Eleft­he­rios Venize­los. Another ship was ex­pected to trans­fer around 1,800 peo­ple yesterday.
