Inmigrantes y refugiados llegan a la costa griega

Refugees and migrants reach the coast of this tiny Greek island on October 11, after crossing the Aegean Sea from Turkey. The number of people arriving here has surged in October to what officials attribute efforts to make the trip before the weather turns cold in winter. According to the island's Ministry of Interior, nearly 30,000 people landed here during the first week of October alone, adding to the 160,000 who arrived in September. Most of the new arrivals are from Syria, with large contingents from Afghanistan, Iraq, Eritrea and North African nations. European governments are under pressure to help genuine refugees while limiting the number of economic migrants entering the European Union.
