(Video) Leros: The Tiny Greek Island Sinking Under Europe’s Migrant Crisis


Leros is a tiny Greek island seven miles from the Turkish coast where 2,500 migrants have arrived illegally by boat in the last three weeks. Without support from Athens or Europe, overstretched local authorities rely on a committed team of local volunteers to prevent chaos and humanitarian crisis. But as increasing numbers of migrants arrive at Leros, the island is at breaking point, as The Guardian’s Phoebe Greenwood reports.



  1. They come via Turkey….why ? Turkey is an Islamic country, Greek is Othordox, why are their Muslim brothers not helping them, and why are they not happy to stay in an Islamic country ?

  2. One day all these people who help migrants will have to stand trial for high treason. An exception tribunals will show no mercy. Only one punishement for these traitors !
