Macedonia fires tear gas at migrants (Video)

Macedonian police fired tear gas and stun grenades Friday to drive back crowds of migrants and refugees gathered at Macedonia’s border with Greece, Reuters reports. Macedonia declared a state of emergency Thursday and sent troops to seal its norther and southern borders. The emergency declaration following weeks of chaos when as many as 2,000 migrants gathered daily at a Macedonian railroad station en route to the EU. A record 50,000 migrants arrived in Greece by way of boats from Turkey in July. Thousands of Syrians, Afghans and others are now in no-man’s land between Greece and Macedonia.
