The German government has now agreed to take in 1,553 migrants from Moria – they are from 408 families who have received refugee status.
Earlier, Germany also said it would take in up to 150 unaccompanied minors. Greece flew 400 children to the mainland last week, and EU countries have agreed to receive them, though the details are not yet clear.
Since the 2015 migrant crisis the numbers arriving on Greek islands near Turkey have fallen considerably, but Greek camps, like those in Italy, remain overcrowded.
Greece and Italy have accused wealthier northern nations in the EU of failing to share the burden, as irregular migrants – including refugees from war zones – continue to seek a new life in Europe.
