More than 4000 refugees arrived to the port from the Greek islands of Lesbos and Chios with the majority of them heading by buses to the Greek-Macedonian border.

"Those without papers, the so-called illegal migrants, have the right to request asylum (or) the right to voluntary repatriation," junior interior minister for migration Yiannis Mouzalas told reporters.
