MSF pulls out of Lesbos hotspot as aid groups slam migrant deal

Migrants from Pakistan wait to enter the Moria camp for migrants and refugees on the Greek island of Lesbos on March 21, 2016International aid organisation Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said Wednesday it had suspended activities at a refugee centre on the Greek island of Lesbos to avoid being complicit in an “unfair and inhumane” EU deal to send newcomers back to Turkey. The move came a day after the UN refugee agency UNHCR said it had suspended some activities in Greece, saying reception centres had become “detention facilities”. The International Rescue Committee (IRC), operating in Lesbos, and the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) swiftly joined MSF and the UNHCR in voicing concerns and scaling back activities.
