Pictured: Refugees throw stones and batter down the barbed wire gate of the fence Monday 29 February 2016<br />
Re: A crowd of migrants has burst through a barbed-wire fence on the FYRO Macedonia-Greece border using a steel pole as a battering ram.<br />
TV footage showed migrants pushing against the fence at Idomeni, ripping away barbed wire, as FYRO Macedonian police let off tear gas to force them away.<br />
A section of fence was smashed open with the battering ram. It is not clear how many migrants got through.<br />
Many of those trying to reach northern Europe are Syrian and Iraqi refugees.<br />
About 6,500 people are stuck on the Greek side of the border, as FYRO Macedonia is letting very few in. Many have been camping in squalid conditions for a week or more, with little food or medical help.
