Some of the Bulgarians blocked for days on the Greek island of Samothraki were transported to Alexandroupolis last night, it was reported.

It is expected that on Thursday, everyone wishing to evacuate could do so via the Andros Jet ferry, Bulgarian Consul General in Thessaloniki, Vladimir Pisanchev said. Tensions among people forced to stay on the island due to bad weather and technical problems have arisen after many of them had their cars transported, while passengers were left on Samothraki to wait for the next ferries. Tourists who could not board the first ferry blocked the ship at the port in Samothraki. At the end, the authorities coped with the problem.
