Stranded in Greece

Stranded in Greece

A child stands in a field at a makeshift camp near the village of Idomeni at the Greek border with the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), where thousands of migrants and refugees are stranded. Greece will not be able to start sending refugees back to Turkey, the government said on Sunday, as the country struggles to implement a key deal aimed at easing Europe's migrant crisis. The deal aims to strangle the main route used by migrants travelling to the EU and discourage people smugglers, but it has faced criticism from rights groups and thousands took to the streets of Europe in protest.
