Refugees as they come through Greece on their way to northern EU countries
Ahmed (20) is from Herat in Afghanistan. He used to study law but he stopped after two of his uncles were killed and his father became worried about his safety and his future and asked him to leave the country and study abroad. He has been travelling for 20 days. He crossed to Greece via Rhodes island and he hopes to be able to reach Germany and continue with his studies there. He was about to board the bus to Eidomeni border.
Refugees often arrive to Thessaloniki by train and then they go to the intercity bus station to board on the bus to Eidomeni border where they can cross to the Republic of Macedonia on foot.
