Members of a local Serbian mafia count the money they collected from refugees and migrants trying to travel from Dimitrovgrad on the Serbian-Bulgarian border to Serbia's capital, Belgrade. For the last five years local Serbian groups have been taking advantage of the refugees and migrants who are desperately attempting to reach northern Europe.
Mahmoud and Amer
Mahmoud, 22, and Amer, 32, both Palestinian refugee living in Yarmouk Camp in Syria, became close friends and fled together with their families in April 2015 - by which time 90% of Yarmouk was controlled by ISIS. Along with 15,000 other refugees and migrants, they became stranded in Idomeni on the Greek-Macedonian border when the final passageway into northern Europe was closed.
Mahmoud currently remains in an asylum holding centre in Greece while Amer - with the help of smugglers - managed to reach Essen in Germany where his wife and daughter were waiting in an asylum centre.
