Greece seeks EU help to run migrant camps after major fire

Greece has called on the European Union to jointly run new refugee camps being built on its eastern islands as part of a planned overhaul of the country’s migration policy. Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis made the call Tuesday at a meeting in Athens with European Council President Charles Michel as Greece struggles with the aftermath of fires on the island of Lesbos last week that gutted a large refugee camp and left thousands without shelter. Just 800 homeless migrants have been moved so far to a site being built by the Greek army, and only tents are available.
