Greece-Fyrom buffer zone still closed; large number of refugees awaiting at the camp
The buffer zone between Greece and Fyrom at Idomeni, the crossing point for refugees from Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria, remains closed for second consecutive day. Over 1,000 refugees have found shelter at the temporary camp in Idomeni.
Police said that nine buses with 500 refugees are waiting at the nearby gas station. The passengers will be checked and those coming from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq will be sent to the camp. Those lacking the necessary documents that will allow them to cross the borderline will be sent back to Athens with a leased bus.
Fyrom’s authorities closed the crossing point on Tuesday afternoon.
