Mithymna, Lesbos (Lesvos, Levos), Greece

A young man from Syria looks back towards Turkey after crossing the Aegean to the Greek island of Lesbos. He was extremely cold after a bad crossing during which their boat's engine failed and they drifted for several hours.Huge numbers of refugees, many of them hailing from Syria and Afghanistan, have been crossing the Aegean sea from Turkey to Greece. The Island of Lesbos is the main landing point and thousands of people are now clogging the Island's main cities and ports as they look for ways to continue their journey onto the mainland and towards the Balkans. The crossings are fraught with danger as boats are overloaded and usually captain-less.
