Greek police remove 2,300 migrants from Macedonia border

Migrants and refugees walk to cross the Greek-Macedonian border near Idomeni on December 9, 2015Greek police launched an operation Wednesday to remove more than 2,000 migrants gathered at the border with Macedonia, after Skopje began filtering those who can cross the frontier by nationality. The migrants — mainly from Pakistan, Somalia, Morocco, Algeria and Bangladesh — will be sheltered in disused Olympic stadiums, police said, adding that some 350 riot officers were mobilised at dawn for the operation. Greece and Macedonia are both on the migrant trail that has seen hundreds of thousands of people, fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East and elsewhere, head to northern Europe this year after landing from Turkey in flimsy boats.
