Migrants protest conditions at reception center

A refugee girl stands next to her mother during a protest at the Ministry of Macedonia and Thrace in Thessaloniki Tuesday. Representatives of the nearby municipality of Thermi and local residents are insisting that conditions at the refugee reception facility in the area of Vasilika be improved immediately as winter is looming and temperatures are dropping. Protesters are also calling for an on-site school to be set up for migrant children and the faster processing of asylum applications and relocations. [Giannis Papanikos/AP]
