Migrants bury the body of an unidentified refugee from Syria found off the Greek coast by the Greek Coast Guard, in the cemetery of Agios Panteleimonas in Mytilene, on the island of Lesbos, on August 28, 2015. Greece’s coastguard on August 24 said it had recovered the bodies of two migrants who drowned when their boat sank near the island of Lesbos, and was seeking five more who were missing. Lesbos is one of several Greek islands overwhelmed in recent weeks by the influx of migrants and refugees, mainly from war-torn Syria. Some 160,000 migrants and refugees have landed on Greek shores since January, with the authorities criticised by the UN and humanitarian groups for poor preparation that has left thousands sleeping on the streets.
