FYROM authorities again bar passage to refugees at Idomeni
Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) authorities again barred the passage of refugees through the Greece-FYROM border at Idomeni, starting at 6:00 on Friday morning.
According to sources, the decision was made in order to ease overcrowding at the refugee transit camp in Gevgelija, which is full.
As a result, more than 1,000 refugees have been left trapped on the Greek side of the border.
At 16:00 on Friday afternoon, there were 400 refugees at the transit camp at Idomeni and another 700 were waiting on board 14 coaches at the fuel station where coaches stop so that the refugees’ documents can be inspected.
