Refugee Asylum Seekers Transferred from Lesbos Detention Camp

LESBOS — Some 620 refugees at the Kara Tepe tent city on the island of Lesbos who want asylum in Greece have been transferred, the Migration Ministry said, further reducing the numbers as officials have asked.

Sources not named told Kathimerin that 540 of them were sent to a nearby temporary tent city, while another 80 were sent to a hosting facility on the mainland.

The current population at the temporary camp is under 6,000 while the total number of asylum seekers living on Lesbos is some 7,200, less than half the number that used to be in the Moria camp that migrants upset over COVID-19 health restrictions burned to the ground.
