GENEVA (Reuters) - Britain is offering 4,000 spaces for Syrian refugees, a spokeswoman for the U.N. refugee agency told reporters on Friday. "We welcome very much the move to increase resettlement spaces for Syrians in the UK. Those spaces are going to be critical to the lives and future of 4,000 people," Melissa Fleming said. Earlier, Prime Minister David Cameron said Britain would take in "thousands more" Syrian refugees, without giving numbers. (Reporting by Tom Miles; Editing by Alison Williams)
About 200 unregistered migrants trying to board a ship scuffled with police and coastguard officials on the Greek island of Lesbos on Friday, a coastguard spokesman told Reuters, with television footage showing migrants throwing stones at police. Police used teargas to disperse the migrants, a reporter at the scene for the Greek news channel ANT1 said. "About 200 migrants that were not registered tried to get on a ferry at the port and they were pushed back by the police and the coastguard," coastguard spokesman Nikos Lagkadianos said.
