Greek police close border to migrants

Greek police close border to migrantsPolice in northern Greece closed a border crossing with Macedonia and stops people from getting within 5 kilometers of it following a standoff with hundreds of people who have been denied entry.

Authorities early Wednesday closed the area and briefly detained journalists and photographers at the perimeter. More than 200 riot police have been deployed to the border area at Idomeni following the standoff that has halted freight rail services from Greece to other European countries.

The migrants have been stranded at the border for three weeks after authorities in Macedonia restricted access to citizens from countries normally granted political asylum, such as Syria and Iraq.

Police said the migrants will be moved to Athens in buses.
