Refugees to travel from Mytilene to Piraeus after seamen’s strike suspended
A total of 770 refugees left Mytilene as soon as the seamen’s federation (PNO) strike ended early on Sunday. Another 680 refugees will leave Mytilene at 20:00 and 1,500 at 21:00. Three more ferries with 800, 350 and 2,500 refugees aboard are scheduled to leave the island between 23:00 and 1:00.
Meanwhile, the refugee flows from the Turkish coasts continue unabated. A wooden vessel with at least 200 refugees on board ran aground north of Mytilene late on Saturday. The Greek Coast Guard and the Frontex rescued the refugees and transferred them to the port of Mytilene.
In another incident, a body in advanced decomposition was recovered by a fishing boat in western Lesvos.
