BUILD UP OF MIGRANTS IN GREECE BEGINS AS MACEDONIA CLOSES BORDER


Riot police have been deployed at the Greek and Macedonia border after angry migrants were denied access to Macedonia.

Macedonia yesterday said it would only allow in only migrants from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

With hundreds of thousands of migrants arriving in Greece in the last few weeks alone, the build up of migrants stranded inside Greece’s borders could soon overwehlm the country.

It is not clear from reports, but it may have been Greek who helped migrants cross into Macedonia illegally during the night, something which, if it is true, is going to create a political crisis.

In a separate development, Greek police have cracked down on a major ring supplying fake IDs to migrants, allowing them to circumvent the registration centres altogether.
