Greece ships first migrants back to Turkey under EU deal

Migrants are deported to Turkey from the Greek port of Mytilene on April 4, 2016Greece shipped more than 200 migrants back to Turkey on Monday, the first wave of deportations under a hugely controversial deal aimed at easing Europe’s worst migration crisis since World War II. Two boats left the Greek island of Lesbos at dawn, and another from the island of Chios, carrying mostly Afghan and Pakistani migrants who Turkey will eventually deport to their home countries. Facing an unprecedented influx that has threatened to tear the bloc apart, the European Union clinched a last-ditch deal with Turkey to take back all migrants landing in Greece after March 20.
