Moroccan youths living rough in northern Paris park

For the past few months, a small park in northern Paris has been the closest thing to a home for a group of Moroccan youths who illegally entered the European Union. Most are teenagers but some are as young as ten. Living rough on the streets, they smoke, drink alcohol and commit petty crimes. Their presence in the neighbourhood has sparked both anger and pity amongst locals. And while some social workers are providing them with a basic level of support, authorities are a rare sight.

A report by Jean Barrère and Norredine Bezziou, with Julia Sieger.

A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett and Florence Viala.
