Syrian refugees are seen onboard the passenger ship “Eleftherios Venizelos” at the port on the Greek island of Kos. A passenger ship carrying Syrian refugees set sail from the Greek island of Kos heading for the mainland as authorities struggle to cope with a wave of arrivals. The Greek coast guard’s office said the ship, which has acted as a floating accommodation and registration centre since Sunday, was heading for the northern port of Thessaloniki, Greece’s second biggest city.
Two Syrian refugees sit at the dock of the port of Kos as the passenger ship “Eleftherios Venizelos” backs into the quay on the Greek island of Kos. The vessel will house more than 2500 migrants who arrived in the country from the Turkish coast and will be used as a registration center for migrants. The United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR) called on Greece to take control of the “total chaos” on Mediterranean islands, where thousands of migrants have landed. About 124,000 have arrived this year by sea, many via Turkey, according to Vincent Cochetel, UNHCR director for Europe.
