Default Greek Lesbos struggling to cope with the 4,000 migrants arriving EVERY DAY

And still the boats keep coming: Authorities on Greek Lesbos struggling to cope with the 4,000 migrants arriving EVERY DAY

Nearly half the migrants reaching Greece in small boats from Turkey arrive on the island of Lesbos

Authorities are struggling to cope with the 4,000 people who arrive each days after making the crossing

A football stadium has been turned into a screening centre and more police and finger print equipment drafted in

Around 17,000 have now been screened and boarded ferries to the mainland, but aid workers fear more are coming

It may have been compared to a warzone by its residents, but that has not slowed the boat loads of migrants arriving on the Greek island of Lesbos.

Authorities are struggling to cope with the 4,000 refugees arriving each day after making the perilous crossing to the holiday island.

Nearly half the migrants reaching Greece in small boats from Turkey arrive on Lesbos, and sleep rough there until they can be registered.

Fifteen babies and children die as boat sinks off Greek coast
Quote:

Thirty-four refugees, almost half of them babies and children, drowned when their boat sank off a Greek island, almost certainly the biggest death toll in those waters since the migrant crisis began.

Four babies, six boys and five girls died when the wooden vessel carrying them overturned yesterday morning about 5km east of the island of Farmakonisi, close to Turkey's coast.

Tens of thousands of mainly Syrian refugees have braved rough seas this year to make the precarious journey from Turkey to Greece's islands, mainly in overcrowded dinghies.

The coastguard said 68 people were rescued from the water and another 30 from the same boat were found on Farmakonisi.

On Lesbos, an island that has borne the brunt of Greece's migrant intake, witnesses saw 10 dinghies arriving within 90 minutes yesterday.

Syrian refugees have made Lesbos a war zone amid fears ISIS is entering Europe

Quote:

Syrian refugees have turned Lesbos into a war zone, residents claim, as migrants chant 'f*** you' at Hungarian police amid fears ISIS is using the crisis to enter Europe

Greek islanders describe their fear after 20,000 refugees arrived on Lesbos

One in five people on the island is a refugee - the vast majority from Syria

News comes as video showed refugees clashing with Hungarian police

Swear and attack officers while chanting the Islamic slogan 'Allahu Akbar'

Meanwhile two men suspected of being ISIS fighters have been arrested in Europe after they uploaded photos showing them hiding among refugees

Residents living on Lesbos have described the Greek island as a 'war zone' following the arrival of 20,000 mainly Syrian refugees over the past few weeks.

The daily arrivals mean that desperate refugees currently make up one in every five people on the island, which lies just a few miles from the Turkish mainland, across the Mytilini Strait.

Locals have accused the refugees of bringing Lesbos to a standstill, overwhelming the local infrastructure and leaving residents feeling so threatened that many of them have stopped leaving the house to go to work and are no longer

sending their children to school.

The news comes as two men suspected of being ISIS terrorists were arrested in an unspecified eastern European country after after intelligence groups noticed they had started uploading photographs taken in cities hit by the refugee

crisis to their social media pages.

The news comes as tensions were raised across Europe, which is struggling to come to terms with its worst refugee crisis in 70 years.

Refugees chanted Islamic slogans and shouted 'f**k you' during clashes with Hungarian police last week, it was claimed, as tensions over the migrant crisis continue to grow across Europe.

Amateur video published on LiveLeak shows a crowd charging at police outside Keleti train station in eastern Budapest, with refugees purportedly shouting 'Allahu Akbar' and swearing at officers
