Last journey of one migrant's family

Hundreds of migrants face huge debts and a logistical nightmare to repatriate the bodies of loved ones who have died during perilous sea crossings to Europe.

Mohammed Nowrouz Noori, an Afghan in his 30s, lost his wife Nilufar, his son Mohammad and baby daughter Nastaran in January on a failed crossing from Turkey to Greece.

Repatriating the bodies of his wife and son to Kabul for burial took him 12 days and left him bankrupt - he never found his daughter.
