Greek refugee island running out of space to bury the dead

A piece of marble reading 'Unidentified' is placed over the grave of a person who drowned on the way from Turkey to the Greek island of Lesbos, at a makeshift cemetery in Mytiline, on the island of LesbosSince the start of the summer, the Greek island of Lesbos has assumed notoriety as the main gateway into Europe for thousands of desperate refugees. Nearly 500 people have died trying to cross the Aegean Sea from neighbouring Turkey this year, many of them in the narrow but treacherous stretch separating Lesbos from Turkey. Local municipal and church authorities this week declared that the island’s cemetery was full, leaving them no option but to store dozens of bodies in a refrigerated container.
