IDOMENI, GREECE - MARCH 20: A child wanders between tents erected inside an old railway shed where people are sheltering at the Idomeni refugee camp on the Greek Macedonia border on March 20, 2016 in Idomeni, Greece. Thousands of migrants remain stranded at the border camp following high hopes that yesterday's EU summit would have brought them some sort of resolution. The decision by Macedonia to close its border to migrants last week followed the lead taken by neighbouring countries, effectively sealing the so-called western Balkan route, the main migration route that has been used by hundreds of thousands of migrants to reach countries in western Europe such as Germany. Humanitarian workers have described the conditions at the camp as desperate, which has been made much worse by recent spells of heavy rain. (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images)
