Greece criticizes neighbor's 'excessive' move and those who spread rumors of border openings

Migrants waged running battles with Macedonian police after they were stopped from scaling the border fence with Greece near the border town of Idomeni on Sunday, and aid agencies reported that hundreds of stranded travelers were injured.

Macedonian police used tear gas, stun grenades, plastic bullets and a water cannon to repel the migrants, many of whom responded by throwing rocks over the fence at police. Greek police observed from their side of the frontier but did not intervene.
