Refugees leaving Portugal double

Over the past two months the number of refugees taken in by Portugal and who have left the country, has doubled.

Of the 1,255 refugees taken in under the EU quota programme, 474 have already left the institutions that accommodated them.

The majority of the refugees, who are mostly Syrian, are on the run, although 147 have been located and some even arrested in other countries.
