Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A mi­grant tries to swim to a dinghy car­ry­ing refugees head­ing for Lesvos yesterday. At least two peo­ple died in the sea off the eastern Aegean is­land, while another 10 were re­ported miss­ing. The po­lice said that al­most 187,000 mi­grants and refugees have ar­rived on the is­land this year, which is more than dou­ble its pop­u­la­tion. They added, how­ever, that there has been no letup in ar­rivals de­spite the de­te­ri­o­ra­tion in the weather. Some 3,000 peo­ple are ar­riv­ing each day.
