10 September, 16:36

    (ANSA) - BERLIN, SEPTEMBER 10 - German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron agreed on Thursday to accommodate 400 unaccompanied minors from the Moria migrant camp on Lesbo, Greece, following a fire that destroyed it, said news agency DPA.

    The exact division of the minors between the countries has not yet been announced, but DPA said talks are still ongoing to involve other European countries.

    Macron had previously expressed the need to be supportive of Greece.

    There are currently about 12,000 people at the Moria camp, which was designed to hold 2,800.

    In Germany, 16 conservative MPs wrote on Thursday morning to German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, pleading for the reception of 5,000 migrants by Europe, or, in the absence of a deal, by Germany alone. (ANSAmed).
