Young Afghan boy is hailed 'Little Picasso' in refugee camp

An Afghan refugee with a gift for drawing has earned the nickname 'Little Picasso'.

Farhad Nouri, 10, is stranded at a camp in Serbia while he, his parents and two younger brothers await the outcome of asylum applications.

They are among thousands of people who have tried to reach western Europe but have come up against closed borders and anti-migrant sentiment.

As he waits for what he hopes will be a peaceful life in Switzerland or the US, Farhad draws portraits of family members, friends and celebrities, castles and nature.
