Afghan refugees discard their life jackets after they land on the beach near Skala Sykaminias on Lesbos island, Greece. Every day hundreds of refugees, mainly from Syria and Afghanistan, are crossing in small overcrowded inflatable boats the 6 mile channel from the Turkish coast to the island of Lesbos in Greece. Many spend their life savings, over $1,000, to buy a space on these boats.
