MADRID (Sputnik) — A group of 19 refugees arrived in Spain from Greece on Wednesday under the European Union's refugee redistribution quotas, the Spanish Interior Ministry said on its website.
This is the fourth group of refugees in the last eight days, the ministry said. There are 14 migrants from Syria and five from Iraq. They will be sent to the city of Salamanca and the Navarre region. Spain has accepted 105 refugees since 2015 under the quota system.
The European Union is struggling with an enormous flow of migrants entering the bloc mainly by crossing the Mediterranean Sea. The refugees are fleeing from conflicts and violence in the Middle East and North Africa.
