Veteran Barcelona soccer club star Juliano Belletti trains with refugee children during an event Thursday to honor the citizens of the eastern Aegean island of Lesvos for their invaluable contribution at the height of the refugee crisis. "We want to bring some hope and joy to the people that are suffering," Belletti said, adding that soccer is a powerful force that can, if properly managed, help to unite people. The event, held in Mytilene town, was organized by the island municipality, the FC Barcelona Foundation and the player association of the Catalan giants. [Costas Baltas/Reuters]
