Greece faces a "humanitarian crisis" over its mistreatment of asylum-seekers and migrants, according to a report by Amnesty International.
The group accuses the government of detaining thousands of refugees, including many children, in "shameful [and] appalling" conditions.
Greece is a major gateway for migrants from Asian and African countries as they try to enter the European Union.
Attacks against foreigners have been on the rise in the debt-stricken nation.
