Greece: Migrants on a bitterly divided island

Concerns are growing in Greece about how to cope with thousands of migrants arriving by boat from countries across the Middle East and beyond - many of them in desperate need.

At least 48,000 have arrived in Greece by sea this year - more than six times the number during the same period last year.

Many are arriving in some of the Mediterranean's most popular tourist resorts, among them Lesbos, just a few miles from Turkey.
