There have been more violent clashes over night between police and migrants in the tent city that has been created on Greece’s northern border with the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia (FYROM)

The incidents began earlier on Wednesday evening when hundreds of migrants ran towards a police block, pushing a train wagon to break through to the other side.

The camp at Idomeni is housing around 11,000 people who want to reach the more prosperous EU regions.
But since Macedonia closed its border the pressure cooker environment has triggered regular unrest.
