A Greek police officer keeps a close watch on the Turkish border at Likofito, part of an aggressive campaign this month to try to seal Greece’s 130-mile northeastern border during its financial crisis that has seen a swell in joblessness and a surge in racist attacks against immigrants, mostly from Afghanistan and Pakistan. The operation has sent nearly 2,000 additional border guards to the Turkish frontier. Some of the illegals caught at the border (below) wait at a detention center in Filakio. (Associated Press)
