Flooding Upsets Migrants Stranded in N. Greece; Rains Flood Makeshift Camp of 12,000 Refugees

Bad weather is adding to the misery of thousands of migrants blocked at the Greece-FYROM (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) border, the Euro News website reports today (March 4, 2016).

Heavy rain has flooded parts of the makeshift camp where some 12,000 people have sought refuge. FYROM has built a fence along its border with Greece to prevent migrants from entering its country.

Children and the elderly are among those living in cold and difficult conditions at the Idomeni camp in Greece.

Syrian migrant Intisar Ali, who is nine-months pregnant, said: "This is full of water, so the people come here, and seven persons, and our bucket is full of water so it's so cold."
