Greece: Idomeni refugees disrupt traffic to Macedonia in protest of border closure

6 28.03.2016 Инфо

Refugees blocked traffic on the E75 motorway for an hour close to Evzonoi near the Idomeni refugee camp, Monday, stopping cars from reaching Macedonia in protest of the country’s decision to close their border.
Police arrived on the scene, but no major incidents occurred. Traffic has since resumed.
Around 14,000 refugees remain stranded in Idomeni. Doctors Without Borders has warned that conditions at the camp have worsened significantly since Macedonian authorities closed the country's borders with Greece on March 9. UNCHR and Greek authorities opened new camps in the northern Greece and people, stranded in Idomeni, started slowly moving to these camps.
