[English] Medhi has never known his father. He was 11 when his mother died. A friend of his family sent him to Pakistan, to work in a carpet factory. Two years later, he fled to Iran with other boys. But life in Iran is difficult for Afghan refugees, sleeping in shantytowns and picking up plastic bags for retailing. He decided to leave and try to reach Europe. After a six-month trip, at 14, he spent two weeks in Paris before trying his luck for northern Europe.
