Migrant Crowds Create Passage for Women and Children to Move Through
Just as it is occurring in other parts of Europe, the migrant crisis in Kos, Greece is escalating. Chaos broke out particularly after Greek authorities attempted to move migrants to a stadium nearby in order to execute registration procedures. Despite this attempt to calm and regulate the flux of refugees, the constantly increasing number of people reaching the Greek shores makes it impossible for local authorities to contain the situation. In this photo, a group of Syrian men are captured creating a passage for women and children to move through in order to protect them from the forceful crowd.
