Lesvos bids farewell to symbol of refugee support


Mourners gathered at the Greek fishing village of Skala Sykamnias on Lesvos on Thursday for the funeral of 90-year-old Maritsa Mavrapidi, one of three elderly women who became symbols of the islanders’ solidarity with refugees at the peak of the migrant crisis in 2015 and were nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.
