Hundreds were brought to Kavala port and from there to Thessaloniki where gates in the port were prepared to host refugees.
Others arrived to Skaramangas port near Athens. Many will be transferred to camps around Ioannena. New arrivals were brought also to Koutsochero – an army camp in the middle of nowhere. On Sunaday 47,536 refugees were in Greece. In the last hours before the EU-Summit conclusions would come into force hundreds of refugees tried reaching the Greek islands. The agreement referring to the quick readmission of all newcomers does not however affect the more than 46,000 refugees and migrants already in Greece, but all newcomers after March 20th. Refugees despite the threats of immediate returns by the EU continue to make the dangerous crossing in unseaworthy boats, as they flee war and conflict. In Mytilene two dead refugees were found in a dinghy who seemingly died of heart attacks. In Kos two small girls drowned as they fell of a refugee boat.
