634 asylum seekers in Samos to be transferred to Attica

Some 634 asylum seekers in so-called vulnerable groups will be transferred to a former military accommodation facility at Ritsonas, in Attiki, from the reception and identification facility on the island of Samos.

The ferry ‘Nissos Chios’, which will carry the asylum-seeking migrants to Piraeus, remains docked at Lesvos, but will sail as soon as weather conditions allow it.
