A teenager, Wassim had left Sudan in search of a better life. He is among hundreds of migrants and refugees living rough in the Italian town of Ventimigla (pictured behind Wassim) as they wait for their next chance to dodge police and cross into France. Wassim was walking back to Ventimiglia having been caught trying to cross a perilous route nicknamed 'the pass of death' - his 6th failed attempt.
