Greece's government continues to come under heavy criticism from all sides after the new "tent city" migrant camp on the island of Lesbos was flooded following days of heavy rainfall across the country.
Apocalyptic scenes of families with small children, including Palestinian asylum seekers, wading through pools of dirty rainwater and mud, and tents being blown away by stormy weather conditions, have laid bare the fragility of the new Moria facility which was hastily built as a temporary measure after a series of fires destroyed the old camp at Moria.
The social media accounts of several NGOs and international newspapers published once more images and videos showing disruption at the site, with many tents completely flooded out and sunken in the mud.
The Moria camp was built to house 3,000 people but at least four times as many people have been living there.
The unsanitary conditions being endured by Moria's former inhabitants in the fields and streets of Lesbos has caused deep alarm.
Many Palestinian refugees in Moria described life there as being worse than much of what they had endured on their long, often painful journeys towards what they hoped was a better life in Europe.
