More Than 22,000 Migrants Left Stranded in Greece, Nowhere to Go

The humanitarian disaster unfolding on Greece’s borders, and beyond, has arrived on his doorstep in the very heart of the city.
More than 22,000 migrants have been left stranded in Greece after a cap on border crossings by Balkan countries ‘trapped’ them in the country. The figure could triple to 70,000 next week, the Greek government warned yesterday.

The city’s former international airport has been converted into a huge migrant centre. The ‘arrivals hall’ holds 1,500 people (Afghans, Syrians and Iraqis).

A hockey stadium immediately behind the building, built for the 2004 Athens Olympics, houses 1,500 (Somalians, Libyans, Moroccans and Yemenis).
