Refugee crisis: Boats arrive in Greece despite EU deal

Five boats carrying Syrians arrive from Turkey hours after a deal aiming to cut off refugee route to EU comes into force.

The majority of the refugees who arrived were from Syria, said Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr, reporting from the Greek island of Lesbos.

Under the deal struck on Saturday, for every Syrian returned, the EU will resettle one from a Turkish refugee camp.

Can Germany accommodate all these extra refugees?
