Bags belonging to asylum seekers with one bearing the Swiss national flag are seen in a subterranean shelter used as temporary asylum center on August 14, 2013 in Kestenholz. Police proceeded this week to remove 10 asylum seekers who had been camping out for days at the Solothurn train station in northwestern Switzerland in protest against their living conditions in a subterranean bunker in Kestenholz they described as 'unworthy of a human being'. Switzerland, which prides itself on its humanitarian principles, is facing a barrage of criticism over its treatment of asylum seekers.
