The refugee crisis
I have been covering refugees and migrants for over 25 years, but this year has been different: migrants are arriving in my homeland. A couple of boats came every night. Everybody aboard was scared because they didn’t know how the police and locals would react. Small dinghies kept on coming, even when the weather was rough. The Turkish coast is just 4-5 km away.
Refugees carry their children off a dinghy on to a beach on the Greek island of Kos after crossing from Turkey. The vast majority of those arriving are Syrians
