    The mayors of Lesvos, Chios, Samos, Kos and Leros, the islands which have been mostly affected by the refugee crisis, requested on Monday a meeting with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras for January 23, sources said.

    In a letter sent to the premier, the five mayors say the meeting is needed "to reach a viable solution for the islands which are bearing the brunt of the refugee crisis." They also say they want to brief him on their "common positions regarding the refugee crisis, always within the context of their willingness to cooperate for the good of the islands."
