Authorities say 162 migrants and refugees have arrived on Greece’s Aegean islands in the past 24 hours, raising the total number to 11,215.
Authorities say 38 arrivals were reported on Samos, 38 on Chios and 22 on Lesvos.

The number of individuals sheltered on Samos has increased by about 40 percent over the past 10 days, officials say.

On Tuesday, State Minister Alekos Flabouraris chaired a meeting on immigration strategy where it was decided that migrants will be gradually moved out of an overcrowded facility on the island, while there are plans to build a second facility to detain migrants who commit violations.
