Child migrants: no parents, no passports

Since January 2014 more than 165 000 migrants have crossed the Mediterranean on treacherous vessels, to reach Europe, many fleeing war and persecution. An increasing number of them are children, often arriving alone without an accompanying adult to take care of them. The UN has referred to this as a "humanitarian crisis without precedent". Our report from Sicily looks into how these children are treated when they reach Italian territory and what happens to them afterwards.
