Kos hot spot left without water for third day


The hot spot on the eastern Aegean island of Kos has been without water for three days, authorities said Wednesday.

In a statement, authorities said the water shortages were a result of the center's poor construction, putting the blame on the company that was picked to build the facility.

Municipal officials said they had mobilised water trucks to supply water to migrants and refugees at the camp, as temperatures have hovered above 30 degrees Celsius in the last few days.
