Greece: Clashes erupt overnight at Kastanies border crossing

Clashes erupted at the Greek-Turkish border, near the Greek town of Kastanies where migrants have been stranded for days in a hope to cross into the European Union to seek asylum. Footage filmed overnight Sunday shows smoke clouds and several fires lit as tear gas and the sounds of shots rang out. Migrants have been trying to cross the border in large numbers since Turkey announced Thursday... Еще, February 27 that it would no longer abide by a 2016 agreement with the EU to halt migration flows into the continent in return for aid. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has announced a €700 million ($779 million) aid package to help Greece deal with the large-scale influx of migrants after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan effectively opened the borders. Erdogan accused the EU of failing to keep its financial promises to Turkey in return for keeping Turkey's borders with the EU closed to refugees and migrants. The statement came after at least 33 Turkish soldiers were killed in an airstrike in Syria's Idlib province last week.
