Greece: 'Open the border!' cry refugee kids at Idomeni camp

Children currently living at the Idomeni refugee camp staged their own protest on Tuesday, demanding Greek police open the border with Macedonia.
The action was peaceful and the police officers who have been deployed to keep the order at the camp did not intervene.
Angelina Lykogianni, a volunteer who is working with ARSIS and Save the Children, stated that children are under "tremendous stress" and there have been "many" episodes of violence or aggression. However, she also highlighted the fact that the children are still able to play, have fun and be forgiving of the general situation.
Earlier on Tuesday, clashes erupted between the police and the residents of the camp who were blocking train tracks to protest the closed borders.
On Monday, Macedonian police demanded that Greek police remove the tents blocking the railway tracks so trains could start running again. Since then, some refugees are trying to convince the protesters to move from the tracks.
Around 14,000 refugees remain stranded in Idomeni, with Doctors Without Borders having warned that the health of the refugees has worsened since Macedonian authorities closed the country's borders with Greece.
