A Syrian migrant has died at the Greek-Turkish border after reportedly being hit in the neck by a rubber bullet, fired by Greek police.

The Greek government has denied responsibility. But this programme has spoken to a witness who confirms the young man collapsed after being hit.

A child refugee also drowned near the island of Lesbos.
