Greece: Refugees struggle as cold snap intensifies - MSN

Video report on temperatures in Northern Greece (-10C). A nonsensical aspect of the reporting is that it shows the drinking water in the refugee camp as frozen from the water spout above the ground in an open, though covered, location. Then the reporter demonstrates each refugee "container" where families are residing has a large portable kerosene heater installed which keeps the people warm. Do the Greeks not allow the refugees to find a way to isolate the frozen water spout and lay kerosene heaters near it, enveloping the drinking water facility with heat so it does not freeze? Heavy tarps would possibly suffice, or better yet one of the "containers" shown which looks to be made from fiberglass or a heavy plastic, perfectly suitable for modification. It seems unlikely that the refugees themselves do not have anyone who has not thought of obvious solutions. The same with the filthy (and frozen) toilet facilities. If portable heat is available throughout the camp, why aren't simple efforts made to preserve the water and toilet facilities?

These are question not addressed by the video reporter. There could be limitations not being reported on, such as the Greek authorities not allowing anyone to take action to preserve the drinking water or toilets, or it could be one of the aid organizations won't allow this as it makes for a better story and so a stronger plea for assistance and attention via and from the media.

Turkey will only withdraw troops from Cyprus if Greece does the same, Turkish president Erdogan warns - UK Telegraph

The calculation here obviously plays into Turkey's long range plans concerning how the island shoudl be shaped:

"Turkey maintains a garrison of around 30,000 in the northern third of Cyprus while Greece has about 1,000 soldiers in the south. President Erdogan said that even if troops were withdrawn, Ankara would want to maintain a presence in the island as one of its guarantors, along with Greece and Britain, the former colonial power.

"We have told Cyprus and Greece clearly that they should not expect a solution without Turkey as guarantor. We are going to be there forever," he said in Istanbul. He said there was a plan for 650 Turkish troops and 950 Greek soldiers to remain on the island after a settlement."
