Greek island struggles to cope with migrant crisis

Hundreds arrive daily at Kos, where they must wait for paperwork to allow them to move on to other parts of Europe.

    The EU has pledged financial assistance to Greece as the country struggles to cope with the massive influx of migrants.

    Hundreds of people from countries including Syria and Afghanistan have been making the short sea journey from Turkey to Kos. And every day they wait - for paperwork that allows them to stay or move on to other parts of Europe.

    Many have already planned out their final destinations, but have been waiting for days to get proper registration documents.

    On the Greek shore, they may be safe from the hardships they have fled, but even here they are far from secure.
