Macedonia police fire teargas at migrants while Europe bickers

Stranded refugees and migrants try to ram down part of the border fence during a protest at the Greek-Macedonian border, near the Greek village of IdomeniBy Alexandros Avramidis and Lefteris Karagiannopoulos IDOMENI/ATHENS (Reuters) – Macedonian police fired teargas to disperse hundreds of migrants who stormed the border from Greece on Monday as a deeply divided Europe traded barbs over the biggest humanitarian crisis in decades. As frustrations boiled over at restrictions imposed on people moving through the Balkans, migrants trapped on the Greece-Macedonia border tore down a metal gate in the barbed wire fence. A Reuters witness said Macedonian police fired several rounds of teargas into the crowd and onto a railway line where other migrants sat refusing to move, demanding to cross into the country.


Clashes as France starts destroying ‘Jungle’ migrant camp

A migrant looks at shacks burning during the dismantling of the "Jungle" migrant camp in Calais, on February 29, 2016Clashes broke out between French riot police and migrants on Monday as authorities began destroying makeshift shelters in the grim shantytown on the edge of Calais known as the "Jungle". Police lobbed tear gas cannisters at migrants who protested as around 20 workers moved in to start pulling down the shacks by hand, initially under blue skies as an icy wind blew. As night fell some 150 migrants threw rocks and struck vehicles heading for England on a port road which runs next to the sprawling camp, staying there for an hour or so, some wielding iron bars, an AFP reporter said.
