Refugees Tear-Gassed After Rushing Fence on Greek-Macedonian Border

HeadlineMar 01, 2016

Meanwhile, refugees fleeing Iraq, Syria and other countries are facing restrictions at borders as they attempt to reach countries in Europe. On the Greek-Macedonian border, refugees stormed a border fence, pulling away barbed wire as Macedonian police fired tear gas into the crowd. Thousands of refugees, many of them from Iraq and Syria, have been stranded in northern Greece as countries further along their migration route have heavily restricted passage. Abdullah, from the Syrian city of Aleppo, is among those stranded.

Abdullah: “It’s suffering here. I am suffering here. I am dying, slowly dying here. I don’t know what I’ll do.”
