More than 300 refugees make Lesvos crossing “first class”
More than 300 migrants and refugees that had forked out the extra cash to make the crossing from Turkey “first class” were intercepted by authorities on the Aegean island of Lesvos on Monday.
The 300-plus migrants were transported from the Turkish coast in a luxury yacht and were sighted off the island’s northern shore at Skala Sykamnias.
The craft was then escorted to the Tsonia beach, where coast guard officers and NGO rescue workers helped bring the refugees ashore.
According to sources, the trip in the yacht cost each passenger roughly 3,000 euros.
