    The mayor of Lesbos has accused the Greek government of wanting to turn the island into "Guantanamo Bay of Europe" for refugees.

    Refugees stranded on the Greek island face a harsh winter, with conditions inside the main government-run camp barely meeting their basic needs.

    The Greek government says it is not getting enough help from the European Union for the refugee crisis.
