On one side of the Greek-Macedonian border lies the Greek village of Idomeni. It’s nestled between rolling hills and the local population stands at about 150 people. Walk one kilometre east from the village and you will find 13,000 refugees and migrants living in tents and improvised camps. As the refugee bottle-neck grows, the camp is overwhelmed and conditions have grown increasingly squalid. Thousands languish in tents in the Greek countryside transformed by recent rains into fields of mud.
