Greece has come under increasing pressure to do more to prevent the flow of migrants to Europe. Thousands of asylum seekers make the journey to Europe over the stretch of sea between the Greek island of Lesbos and the Turkish coast every month.
Asylum seekers often need translators to convey their situation honestly. But the reality is different. Many refugees bear the brunt of untrained or even untrustworthy interpreters who jeopardize their asylum requests.
Years into a refugee crisis, many Greeks continue to resist the integration of asylum seekers stranded in the country. New, far-right extremist groups are taking advantage of the frustration. Anthee Carassava reports.
Refugees continue to cross the Balkan route into Europe that the EU-Turkey deal was meant to cut off. Smugglers show the way. Marianna Karakoulaki and Dimitris Tosidis report from Chios, Thessaloniki, Belgrade and Sid.
Migrants and refugees have threatened a hunger strike in Athens as a protest as they wait to reunite with family members in Germany. Family reunification can take months or years.
