A container outside the morgue's entrance at the University Hospital of #Alexandroupolis is used for the preservation of unidentified bodies, which, if not identified in a period usually of between 3 to 6 months, will be buried in the #cemetery of Sidiro village.
As of June 2021, 25 unidentified bodies were in the container, most of them young men of Pakistani origin.

The main cause of #death for people attempting to cross the land border between #Greece and #Turkey through the #Evros River (Meriç in Turkish) is drowning, while others die from hypothermia during the winter, or from pathological causes.
A smaller proportion dies trying to cross railway lines. Until 2008, when Greece signed the #Ottawa Treaty on anti-personnel mines, the second cause of death was from anti-personnel mines near the river.

Today, with @investigate_eu @reporters_gr and media partners @vice_de @openDemocracy @Publico we publish a first-hand document of EU's failure to protect the most vulnerable asylum seekers -unaccompanied minors.

#MoriaLogs #MoriaDiary


Written by the people who were there to protect them, but often feel incapable of doing so, the personnel logbook reveals the horrors that unaccompanied minors in the "safe zone" were left to endure.


"Safe zones" are separated areas inside refugee facilities, where minors without relatives live under supervision for their safety.

This logbook reveals an environment where the danger of electrocution is not only real, but far from the only concern.
