Disappointment awaits migrants fleeing conflict to GreeceThey arrive full of hope and ambition to idyllic Greek islands, having fled war and other perils. However, once in Athens the migrants from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan discover a country in crisis with little to offer them.Having originally left from Damascus, Mohieddine and his family spent six days at a camp on Lesbos sleeping under the stars.Nancy Retinioti, who works for Doctors Without Borders, says the Greek system for handling new arrivals is completely overwhelmed.More than 69,000 migrants reached Greece in the first half of this year, dwarfing the 43,500 who came throughout the whole of 2014, according to the U.N. refugee agency.The debt and austerity crisis menacing ordinary Greeks is also hitting the migrants.
