This morning 25 Somali and 1 Sudanese have arrived in Chios. We reported their presence and requests to apply for asylum to the authorities and the @UNHCRGreece. We demand that they are taken to the quarantine and not "disappear" to be expelled from the island.

A group of refugees-migrants that arrived on the Greek island of Ikaria on October 17 were reportedly denied their right to seek asylum. Detailed evidence provided by @ABoatReport demonstrates that they were illegally deported to Turkey. aegeanboatreport.com/2021/10… @YlvaJohansson
Locals in Armenistis on the island of Ikaria offered water & food and took care of the women with their babies. The refugees-migrants boarded a coastguard boat in Agios Kirikos and, according to protocol, they will be taken to Samos. Info via @ertofficial_
