Greece requests 2d extension of Frontex RABIT deployment due to events in Egypt

Kathimerini reported on 1 February that Greece requested an additional extension of the Frontex RABIT deployment in Greece due to the situation in Egypt and a fear that there may be a surge in migration towards Greece.  The current RABIT deployment is scheduled to end on 3 March.  The deployment was originally scheduled to end in November 2010 and was extended until March 2011.  The Kathimerini article said that Frontex’s initial informal response to the requested extension was positive.
