Pictures of the Year: A picture and its story
A migrant looks out from under a truck as a port police officer waits to detain him at the port of Patras, from where migrants try to smuggle themselves onto ferries to Italy, in Patras, Greece, March 8, 2018. Reuters photographer Alkis Konstantinidis: "I was in the port city of Patras covering the efforts of migrants to smuggle themselves onto ferries bound for Italy. It's a dangerous passage but became more appealing after the closure of the overland route to northern Europe through the Balkans. It was during the final hours of my two-day access in the port when an officer with the coast guard's special forces squad kneeled beside a truck lined up for embarkation control and pointed his torch towards the undercarriage. Suddenly, he yelled, "Get down! Get down from there!" at two eyes peering back at him. A young man crawled out, checking his surroundings. He looked lost, and I shot some frames as he emerged between the wheels. He got up in silence and was quickly detained and handcuffed. He was part of a group of a few hundred young, mostly Afghan or Pakistani migrants who had been squatting in abandoned factories opposite the port. Every day, they ran across the busy street into the fence, looking for trucks in which to stow away. Most were discovered by police dogs and X-ray machines and held overnight before being released. Nearly all would try their luck again and again." REUTERS/Alkis Konstantinidis SEARCH "POY STORY" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "REUTERS POY" FOR ALL BEST OF 2018 PACKAGES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY.

The Wider Image: A perilous escape
The migrants bolted across a street and clambered over a fence into the Greek port at Patras, scouting around for trucks to stow away in. Dozens at a time scaled a 2-km stretch of fence one afternoon last week, playing cat-and-mouse with police officers who pushed them back only for the men to try again hours later. They are part of a growing number of migrants in Greece trying daily to smuggle themselves onto ferries at Patras to get to Italy. It's a dangerous passage but it has become more appealing since the closure in 2016 of the overland Balkan route to northern Europe.

An Afghan immigrant looks through a wooden fence in a factory as he prepares to make a run towards the ferry terminal in the western Greek town of Patras May 4, 2015. Afghan, Iranian and Sudanese immigrants, living precariously in abandoned factories in Patras, southwest Greece, try to stow away on nearby ferries to Italy as they seek a better life in Europe beyond crisis-hit Greece. Shocked after as many as 900 people drowned last month in the worst Mediterranean shipwreck in living memory, European Union leaders have agreed to triple funding for sea patrols, but disagreement persists on what to do with those fleeing conflict and poverty in the Middle East and Africa.

Sudanese immigrants run behind a truck, which they hope to climb onto, in order to board a ferry to flee to Italy, in the western Greek town of Patras May 4, 2015. Afghan, Iranian and Sudanese immigrants, living precariously in abandoned factories in Patras, southwest Greece, try to stow away on nearby ferries to Italy as they seek a better life in Europe beyond crisis-hit Greece. Shocked after as many as 900 people drowned last month in the worst Mediterranean shipwreck in living memory, European Union leaders have agreed to triple funding for sea patrols, but disagreement persists on what to do with those fleeing conflict and poverty in the Middle East and Africa. Some in Patras are recent arrivals, often travelling via Turkey, others have languished in the empty buildings for as long as two years. REUTERS/Yannis Behrakis
