Refugees on Macedonia - Greece border

Men lay across train tracks as refugees and migrants protest, blocking a train coming from Macedonia and calling for the opening of the borders, at a makeshift camp at the Greek-Macedonian border near the Greek village of Idomeni on March 03, 2016. The transit camp at the border is becoming increasingly overcrowded as thousands of refugees continue to arrive from Athens and the Greek Islands. Macedonia's border with Greece remains 'open' but after allowing 580 refugees a day to cross into the country at the beginning of the week, the numbers passing have fallen dramatically with only a handful every day. According to local authorities approximately 10,000 refugees and migrants now remain stuck at the border as they wait to enter Macedonia to continue their journey north into Western Europe.
