Greek police on Thursday began moving hundreds of migrants stranded on the island of Lesbos to a new temporary camp. It comes more than a week after a fire razed Moria, Greece’s biggest refugee camp, to the ground. The operation to move the refugees to a makeshift accommodation at Kara Tepe involved 170 officers. Authorities said it was necessary to protect public health. Greek officials said they would continue “for some more days in good faith and communication” to convince the migrants to enter the new camp, saying their transfer would be completed within a few days.
