Tensions flare at Macedonian border as soldiers start to build three-metre high fence to keep migrants out

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Tensions have flared at the Macedonian border after migrants became enraged by the sight of soldiers starting to construct a fence along the border with Greece.

The estimated 800 migrants stranded at the border have become increasingly angry over the last two weeks, ever since Macedonia stopped letting anyone but refugees from Syria, Iraq or Afghanistan cross into the country from Greece.

But after Macedonian soldiers began driving three metre metal poles into the ground on Saturday morning, the anger erupted – stoked by an accident which left a Moroccan with severe burns.

A group of about 250 enraged migrants charged the police line, throwing stones – only to be met with tear gas and rubber bullets.

The country follows Hungary and Slovenia in erecting a fence.

The fence is being built to ensure people can only cross from Greece to Macedonia at the approved check points
