Increase in migrant arrivals fuel concerns on an already tense Chios


An increase in arrivals of migrants from neighboring Turkey to Chios has fuelled concern on the island where tensions are already high due to the conditions at the overcrowded refugee camp at Souda and recent protests by far-rightists.

A total of 153 migrants landed on Chios over the weekend compared to 53 on Lesvos.

Currently there are a total of 5,918 migrants on Lesvos, 3,701 on Chios and 2,182 on Samos, according to government figures.
