Greece has temporarily suspended all ferries transporting migrants and refugees from the islands to ease congestion on the mainland, Merchant Marine Minister Theodoros Dritsas has said.

“We do not want to create an unmanageable situation on the islands. This is a totally temporary measure,” Dritsas told Mega TV on Friday.
The Greek government continued to look for more places to temporarily house migrants on Thursday. Defense Minister Panos Kammenos said that five disused military sites in northern Greece would be converted for use as camps for a total of 4,000 people.
