Three boats carrying the first migrants to be deported from Greece to Turkey

Two boats carrying 131 deportees arrived from Lesbos. A third, carrying 66 people, came from the nearby island of Chios, the first 197 refugees to commence the return journey. Although this is hard on the refugees it's not surprising given the cool treatment diplayed by some European countries. However in spite of this a huge number have been warmly welcomed and accommodated and by all accounts, the majority of refugees have no desire to return to Syria.
