Greece steps up evacuation of migrant border camp

Refugees and migrants attempt to break through a barricade held by Greek police as they protest in Idomeni, on April 11, 2016Around 700 migrants have agreed to leave a squalid camp on Greece’s border with Macedonia since violence broke out at the weekend when a group of migrants tried to storm the frontier, sources said Tuesday. “On Monday, seven buses carrying 300 people left Idomeni,” where over 11,000 people had been camped out for weeks in the hope of the sealed border being re-opened, a police source told AFP.
