Thousands stuck on Greek border as Balkans cap migrant arrivals

Children, behind a fence, wait to cross the Greek-Macedonian border along with other Syrian and Iraqis refugees near the village of Idomeni on February 27, 2016Some 6,500 people were stuck at the Idomeni camp on Greece’s northern border with Macedonia on Saturday after four Balkan countries announced a daily cap on migrant arrivals. The build-up began in earnest last week after Macedonia started refusing entry to Afghans and imposed stricter document controls on Syrians and Iraqis, slowing the passage of migrants and refugees to a trickle. The situation looked set to worsen significantly after EU members Slovenia and Croatia, as well as Serbia and Macedonia, said they would limit the number of migrants entering each day to 580.
