The situation in hotspot centres on Greek islands are deteriorating as migrants face overcrowding, insufficient food supplies and lacking shelter, UNHCR spokeswoman Melissa Fleming says.

refugeeConditions at the Greek-Macedonian border and at the mainland harbour of Piraeus are “dismal,” she says, warning that “the risk of panic and injury in these sites and others is real in the current circumstances.”

Fleming also calls on Turkey to quickly adopt a regulation that will provide protection status to people who will be returned from Greece under the recent EU-Turkey deal.
