Calm in Idomeni After Tense Day


Time: 10:07 p.m. CEST

Dozens of hopeful refugees, some carrying babies, rushed to Greece’s overwhelmed Idomeni camp on the sealed border with Macedonia on Sunday following speculation that the frontier would be forced open, the Agence-France Presse said.

About 300 people of all ages gathered by the railway tracks and the border fence earlier Sunday, singing and shouting slogans, an AFP correspondent said, in a largely peaceful demonstration watched by Greek police in riot gear. After became clear the border would stay sealed, calm returned to the camp. In the afternoon, two buses leave the camp transferring the refugees and migrants to northern Greece.
