LESVOS, 31 August 2015 (IRIN) - Two seasonal migrations are taking place in Greece’s eastern Aegean islands. One is welcomed as the lifeblood of the local economy. The other is part of an escalating humanitarian crisis on Europe’s eastern flank.
Air terminals and ferry ports are packed with holidaymakers wearing minimal clothing in the sweltering heat.
At the same time, every day, hundreds – sometimes thousands – of people land on Lesvos’ northern beaches wearing all they possess in the world.
Greece - IOM estimates that some 150,000 migrants have reached Europe by sea to date in 2015. Almost all arrivals were registered in Italy (74,947) or Greece (75,970).
Data provided by the Italian Ministry of Interior shows that during the first six months of 2015, some 70,354 migrants arrived on Italian shores – a slight increase from the same period in 2014, when migrants rescued at sea totaled 63,884 through June 30.
