Idomeni, Greece: Macedonian police fired a round of tear gas on Wednesday to disperse a group of stranded migrants protesting on the Greek side of the razor wire fence dividing the two countries, a Reuters witness said.

Small-scale scuffles broke out when about 50 migrants approached the fence in protest. Hundreds of migrants were wounded on Sunday in clashes with Macedonian police, who fired tear gas and rubber bullets after a group tried to storm the border.
