Europe on cusp of 'humanitarian crisis' as migrants flee

Europe is "on the cusp of a largely self-induced humanitarian crisis" because of a rapid build-up of migrants on Greece's borders, the UN has warned.

"The crowded conditions are leading to shortages of food, shelter, water and sanitation," UN refugee agency (UNHCR) spokesman Adrian Edwards said.

Close to 24,000 migrants in Greece are in need of housing.
