EU withdraws funding for refugee aid agencies

Aid groups helping refugees in Greece are packing up and leaving after the European Union withdrew its funding.

The EU says there is no further need for emergency funding since refugee flows from Turkey have slowed.

The bloc is paying Greek authorities to take over services instead.

But many aid groups say Greece is unprepared and refugees may lose access to vital services.
