Only 7 migrants returned from Germany

Only seven of 1,500 refugees that Greece agreed to take back from Germany as part of a bilateral agreement in August have been returned, according to data from the German Interior Ministry.

The deal concerned refugees in Germany who had originally applied for asylum in Greece.

In return, Berlin agreed to receive 2,900 refugees from Greece as a part of efforts to reunify families, but so far only 345 have been sent to Germany.
