Greece is to start returning migrants to Turkey under an EU deal, despite fears over a lack of preparations and criticism from campaigners, foreign media reports.

‘The agreement is aimed at easing the uncontrolled movement of people into Western Europe, many of whom take the dangerous sea route across the Aegean,’ the report added.

The operation is due to begin on Monday on the Greek island of Lesbos.
