Mouzalas opens spruced-up migrant center

Migration Minister Yiannis Mouzalas inaugurated a revamped refugee camp in Ritsona, north of Athens, Tuesday. Around 680 people are staying in new container housing at the site. More than 62,000 migrants are living in reception centers across the country, many of which are overcrowded, frequently fueling tensions, particularly on islands in the eastern Aegean, the first point of entry for migrants arriving from Turkey.
