Migrant surge hits Greece, UN approves action on smugglers

A elderly man carries a child in a blanket after arriving by boat on the Greek island of Lesbos, after crossing the Aegean sea from Turkey, on October 9, 2015Greece was hit by a huge new surge in migrants as the United Nations approved a European seize-and-destroy military operation against people smugglers in the Mediterranean. The backing for EU navies to take action against traffickers in international waters came as the first asylum seekers were flown from Italy to Sweden under a hotly disputed relocation scheme to share the burden of Europe’s migrant crisis. With 570,000 people having already arrived in the EU so far this year, the figures from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) underlined the limited scope of the relocation scheme, which seeks to move 160,000 refugees from Italy and Greece over the next two years.
