Princess Yasmin Pahlavi visits Iranian refugee camp in Greece

Greece will shut down overcrowded refugee camps on islands facing Turkey and replace them with more restrictive holding facilities, according to officials.The three centres to be closed – on the islands of Chios, Samos and Lesbos, including its notorious Moria camp – currently house about 36,400 people under terrible conditions that have been repeatedly criticised by rights groups and the Council of Europe. They have a nominal capacity of just 4,500.
