Greece races to shelter thousands after Lesbos migrant camp fire

LESBOS ISLAND, GREECE (AFP) – Thousands of asylum seekers on the Greek island of Lesbos were camping on roadsides yesterday after the country’s largest camp burnt down, with officials racing to find them shelter and avert a health crisis.

Desperate families, many with young children, spent a second night in the open, some without tents or basic bedding. Some of the homeless trekked to the nearest villages for water and other supplies.
