Migrant crisis: Macedonia move halts thousands in Greece

Migrants stranded in northern Greece broke through wire fences and jumped over the border into Macedonia on Monday.

Thousands of migrants and refugees are stranded near Athens and on Greece's northern border after Macedonia stops allowing Afghans in.

Some 5,000 people were stuck on the border and another 4,000 arrived at Piraeus port, as Macedonia said only Syrians and Iraqis would be let in.
