Migrants Protest At Border As Greek Bottleneck Worsens

IDOMENI, GREECE – FEBRUARY 29: Refugees break the fence on the Greek-Macedonia border on February 29, 2016 in Idomeni, Greece. A group of refugees forced the gate in an attempt to enter Macedonia. 7 refugees were injured during the riot. Tear gas and sound grenades were fired to clear the railway. The transit camp has become overcrowded as refugees continue to arrive from Athens and the Greek Islands. Macedonia opened its border with Greece allowing 580 refugees a day to cross into the country. According to local authorities 7000 refugees and migrants, mostly from Syria, remain stuck at the border as they wait to enter Macedonia to journey to Western Europe.
