The UN High Commissioner for Refugees says Greece and the EU must act.
"The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, called on Greece to act regarding “the unsustainable situation” for refugees on the Greek islands on Friday.
These refugees are mainly living on the islands opposite Turkey. Grandi said Greece would have “support from Europe.”
“The living conditions on the islands are shocking and shameful,” Grandi said, adding they had gotten worse since his last visit in November."
