The refugee hotspots which have been set up on the islands of Lesvos, Chios and Samos have come under fire from the Human Right Watch over the sanitary and security conditions.
In a report published on Thursday, the Human Rights Watch argues that the refugee hotspots are unsafe and unsanitary, while underlining how women and children in particular are left unprotected and Greek police appear to be indifferent to their plight.
The Human Rights Watch report includes interviews with many people at the hotspots, detailing the lack of hygiene and frequent violent outbursts. The report highlights the fact that single men and women have not been separated, with man instances of sexual harassment being reported.
