Save the Children dub new Greek refugee camps 'inhumane'

Migrants in makeshift border camps close to Idomeni in Greece remain reluctant to move into official shelters.
Greek authorities cleared 4,000 families from Idomeni earlier this week.
One Syrian refugee gave an indication of the feeling of those in the makeshift camp: “Here it is not too bad, but it’s not good, but I think the new camps in Thessaloniki and Athens are very bad, worse than here. I will stay here, I will stay here but I don’t know for how long.”

NGO’s say that when the families arrived in the new sanctioned camp with babies and young children they were greeted by four filthy toilets for 200 people and little food.
For the asylum seekers the dream of a new life in Sweden or Germany has been replaced with the nightmare of life in tent or warehouse.
