Port of Greek Island of Chios Becomes Makeshift Migrant Camp (photos)

Images that were prominent during the height of the migrant crisis in 2016 reappeared on the Greek island of Chios, as hundreds of migrants and refugees camped at the main port.

Vial, the main migrant camp in Chios, is overcrowded and people are forced to stay in the open as winter is arriving.

According to politischios.gr, the situation has deteriorated in the last few days as migrant families found shelter in the area opposite the Port Authority.

In the last two days, 377 migrants and refugees have arrived in Chios.

The local authority says that such a number cannot be accommodated in Vial and unless immediate measures are taken to transport the people to mainland Greece, the island will suffocate.
