French authorities welcomed 200 refugees from Syria and Iraq on Wednesday, the first of around 1,000 who are expected to travel to France from Germany over the next three days.
The images below show some 93 Syrian, Eritrean and Iraqi migrants arriving from Germany in Champagne-sur-Seine, to the south east of Paris, before temporarily settling at the Armade student residence.
They were met by members of the French Red Cross who will provide food and care before they are relocated.
