Two women pass a small clothing stall run by a resident at the Mineo centre for asylum seekers. The centre is based in an old residential compound originally built for the families of US military personnel. It was adapted in 2011 to give shelter to around 2,000 migrants. Today there are more than 4,000 people from different African and Asian countries living there waiting to be either accepted in different countries of Europe, or deported back to their countries of origins.
