GREEK-MACEDONIAN BORDER – Around 2,000 migrants from a camp in northern Greece got around a border fence and crossed in to Macedonian territory on Monday, a Reuters photographer said.

After walking for several hours, the migrants crossed a river and found a way around the fence put up by Macedonian authorities to keep them out, photographer Stoyan Nenov said.

Macedonian soldiers put some of the migrants in army trucks but it was unclear where they would be taken to.

An intelligence source in Macedonia said a group of migrants entered the country. “Police and army are aware, they intervened,” the source said. –Reuters
