104 illegal immigrants relocated to Germany

One hundred and four illegal immigrants who had been living in overcrowded Greek island camps, have been relocated to Hannover, a city in Germany.

According to the German embassy in Athens, the group consisted of children suffering serious health problems and their immediate families, as well as 29 unaccompanied minors.

Hannover is the capital and largest city of the German state of Lower Saxony.

The relocation of unaccompanied minors is part of a program for 1,600 children and teens up to 18 who are in Greece without their parents or guardians to be resettled in other European countries.


It is recalled 139 illegal immigrants were relocated to Germany earlier this month.

Tens of thousands of refugees and migrants, including thousands of unaccompanied children, are living in squalid conditions in overcrowded camps on several Greek islands after arriving from the nearby Turkish coast. Many more are housed in camps, apartments and other shelters across the mainland.

The government continues to reach out to other EU countries to help share the burden.
