#Greece - Riot police begin clearing Idomeni refugee camp - Tweets

Published on 24 May 2016
Greek authorities have began an operation to clear the country's largest refugee camp of Idomeni - on the Macedonian border - after sending in more than 400 riot police.

The camp, which sprung up at an informal pedestrian border crossing for refugees heading north to Europe, is home to an at least 8,400 people - including hundreds of children - mostly from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Al Jazeera's Rob Matheson reports.
