Jordan’s Queen Rania latest high-profile figure to visit Lesvos


Queen Rania of Jordan will visit Lesvos on Monday and meet with refugees, according to a statement by the country’s royal press office on Saturday.

The queen, who will travel to the eastern Aegean island at the invitation of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), will visit the Kara Tepe camp which operates under the auspices of local authorities.

Her visit comes just over a week after Pope Francis, Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomaios and Archbishop Ieronymos visited the eastern Aegean island.
