More than 5,000 people were stuck at the Idomeni camp on Greece’s northern border with Macedonia on Saturday, when four Balkan states began to limit refugee arrivals, Greek police authorities reported.
Macedonia was the first country to introduce the daily caps after it refused entry to Afghans and imposed harsher document regulations on Syrians and Iraqis, bringing the flow of migrants grinding almost to a halt, the same sources said.
Approximately 400 refugees protested in Idomeni on Saturday, calling on the Macedonian authorities to open the border.
