Calm at Greek-FYROM border

The atmosphere was calm again on Sunday in Idomeni, near the neutral zone between Greece and FYROM, following tensions between economic migrants from Asia and Africa and FYROM’s police a day before.

According to police, about 3,000 refugees from Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria crossed the border into the neighboring country since last night, while 1,000 migrants are still living in flimsy tents, unprotected from the cold and the changes in weather. Meanwhile, authorities in FYROM continue to raise a fence across its border with Greece.
Authorities also said a Moroccan migrant who was hospitalized on Saturday afternoon after suffering burns from electrocution at the border station is out of danger.
