    BRUSSELS - Greece will build new refugee camps on Lesvos with the European Union's support after the fire in Moria. A number of sites have already been selected and funding for their construction should come from the EU, a spokesman of the EU executive told reporters on Monday.

    Meanwhile Greece has requested further assistance to deal with the humanitarian disaster through the Union's civil protection mechanism. In an immediate response, Denmark, Austria, Finland, Sweden and Germany have offered hundreds of tents, blankets, kits for the winter and sleeping bags.
