Idomeni: Greek riot police move in before dawn to clear refugee camp
No violence reported as Greek authorities order 8,000 residents of #Europe’s largest informal refugee camp to leave
Greek police are attempting to clear Europe’s largest informal refugee camp, where thousands of #refugees have been stranded for months just south of the Greek-Macedonian border.
Journalists and activists were barred from entry, but witnesses said about 400 riot police entered the camp at dawn on Tuesday to order the approximately 8,000 camp residents to leave. Many left voluntarily in government buses, and by 8am no violence had been reported.
