Nujeen’s story: the Syrian refugee who crossed Europe in a wheelchair

BBC, 17 Sep 2020
Germany has announced plans this week to accept more than 1,500 migrants, following the fire at a detention centre on the Greek Island of Lesbos which left thousands without shelter.

The tragedy was a reminder of the scale of a crisis which has seen vast movements of people fleeing war and poverty.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting from Fergal Kergal Keane, who has been talking to Nujeen about how her life has changed.
