UNHCR: Greece Overwhelmed by Migrants

Afghan_refugeesThe U.N. refugee agency is warning that Greece cannot cope with the flood of refugees and migrants landing on its shores because it lacks proper reception facilities to register and screen them.
The backlog in processing is increasing tension, violence and chaos, the UNHCR said. A violent flare-up in a crowd on the island of Lesvos Thursday forced its staff evacuate briefly from a registration site.
Meanwhile, thousands of refugees and migrants were arriving by sea from Turkey, the agency said.
An upsurge in sea crossings over the past couple of days has increased the death toll, according to UNHCR.
