Greek authorities have begun clearing thousands of stranded refugees from a makeshift camp along the border with Macedonia. At least 8,400 people have been camped at Idomeni after Macedonia restricted and then shut down its border. Refugees have sought to remain in the area, hoping to cross with smugglers or wait for the border to reopen so they can continue their route to other parts of Europe. But earlier today, hundreds of riot police descended on the camp to evict them and transport them to processing stations further south.
