Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei dragged a white grand piano to a muddy, rain-drenched refugee camp on the Greek-Macedonian border Saturday, allowing a young Syrian woman to tinkle the ivories for the first time in years.Performing in the pouring rain under a plastic sheet held up by Ai and others, 24-year-old Nour Alkhzam, who has not seen her husband for over a year because of her country's brutal war, played for 20 minutes in a field at the Idomeni border camp, where 12,000 migrants and refugees are stuck in grim conditions. The stunt was the latest in a series of projets by Ai to shine a spotlight on the people caught up in Europe's worst migrant crisis since World War II.
