Emdadullah Mohamand fled from the Taliban in Afghanistan five years ago. Still waiting for his case to be processed in Germany, he has been spending his time volunteering with a relief organization.
As smuggling activity in the Aegean Sea has reached the highest level since last fall, the Greek islands are once again becoming overcrowded. Diego Cupolo reports that most new arrivals come via Turkey.
Emdad speaks German. He goes to school and volunteers at the Federal Agency for Technical Relief. He will also help build refugee centers. Nevertheless, it is unclear whether the Afghan refugee can remain in Germany.

A Nigerian man accused of murdering a 22-year-old German woman who volunteered with refugees has gone on trial in the western city of Münster. Prosecutors argue he became possessive of the victim after a brief affair.
