Thousands of people in countries across Europe and around the globe marched on Saturday in solidarity with the refugees who have been caught up in one of the worst humanitarian crises in living memory.

In Britain, Spain, Australia and several other European nations, marchers expressed their support for the refugees and urged their governments to treat them humanely and open their borders to them.
