A migrant girl warms herself by the fire near the banks of Evros river, the natural border between Turkey and Greece, near Edirne, Turkey, March 3, 2020. Tens of thousands of migrants, mostly from Syria, other Middle Eastern states and Afghanistan, have reached Turkey's land borders with EU states Greece and Bulgaria since Ankara said it would stop keeping them on its territory.

A riot police officer hits a migrant with his baton as police try to disperse a group of migrants outside the port of Mytilene, Greece, March 3, 2020. The latest migrant surge follows Turkey's decision to stop enforcing a 2016 accord with the European Union whereby it stopped migrants entering the bloc in return for cash. Turkey, already home to 3.7 million Syrian refugees, has another million arriving on its doorstep from a new surge of fighting in northern Syria and says it cannot handle any more.
