Refugees dis­play their art at Elliniko camp

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Young girls from Afghanistan talk in front of their sketches dur­ing the open­ing of an art ex­hi­bi­tion that refugees or­ga­nized at a makeshift camp on the site of the for­mer Athens air­port in Elliniko, south of Athens. Some 57,000 refugees and mi­grants are liv­ing in camps all over the coun­try. The in­flux of mi­grants from neigh­bor­ing Turkey to Greece has seen a slight uptick over the past two weeks fol­low­ing a failed Turk­ish coup but re­mains at lev­els close to those that fol­lowed the sign­ing of a mi­grant deal be­tween Ankara and the Euro­pean Union in March.
