Ferries carrying refugees from Lesvos arrive at the port of Piraeus



Passenger ferry 'Samos Island' carrying 249 undocumented refugees from Lesvos, docked at the port of Piraeus on Monday morning.

Buses transported the refugees from the port to reception facilities on the mainland.

Another ferry carrying 142 refugees, also docked a short time after.

Authorities last month announced plans to move 2,380 asylum seekers deemed to belong to vulnerable groups from overcrowded camps on the Aegean islands to less cramped facilities on the mainland.
