The  five-year-old child of a refugee and a young woman  died from hypothermia  in two separate incidents, when their boats  sank north of Lesvos yesterday.  Despite the bad weather 1,028 migrants arrived there on Tuesday and there is an unknown number of missing migrants.

Meanwhile, the government re opened the camp in Idomeni, since due to a train blockage (as FYROM said) the borders were closed and the refugees that were headed for northern Europe got stuck in Greece, in the area of Iidomeni. under freezing conditions. It was estimated that around 800 people were waiting for the borders to open at Idomeni.
