European migrant crisis

Editor's note: Greek authorities are currently in the process of evacuating the makeshift Idomeni camp on the Greek-Macedonian border, where more than an estimated 8,400 people have been living for months, according to AP. Many international journalists have reported that authorities only allow public Greek media into the camp. The refugees and migrants in Idomeni will be moved gradually to newly completed, organized camps. Although about 20 riot police units, comprising a total of about 400 police, were in Idomeni for the operation, officials have said they will not use force. We will continue to post updates throughout the operation. - Imana
