Fox News reports on organisation Save the Children's concerns about refugee children in Greece, who the organisation says are at risk of exploitation and disease since the State's authorities are overwhelmed by the numbers of refugees arriving every day. Save the Children said that 4,270 children arrived in the Greek islands in June alone, and many have reported not eating in days and often being too afraid to sleep outside or use the toilet at night due to high risk of exploitation and abuse. At least 110,000 people have landed in Greece this year alone, and medicine, food, and housing supplies are limited.
