Rain aggravates conditions at refugee camp near Idomeni

A boy carries a dish through a flooded section of a makeshift camp for migrants near the village of Idomeni, close to Greece’s border with the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Nearly 10,000 refugees and migrants have been camping near Idomeni for months after authorities closed the border in hope it will reopen. Government officials have said they will clear the camp in the next few weeks. There are more than 1,000 migrants at another makeshift camp at the country’s main port of Piraeus while more than 6,000 are living at a state-run facility in Elliniko, southern Athens.
