Turkey: Migrants seen queuing at border, outside shops near frontier with Greece

Large queues of refugees and migrants were filmed at the Pazarkule crossing point, near Edirne, on the Turkish side of the border with Greece, on Thursday. The migrants have been arriving at the border ever since Turkish officials announced the opening of their western borders with the European Union. Footage also shows a makeshift migrant camp erected close to the border, as well as layers of... Еще barbed wire at the Greek frontier. Refugees are also shown queuing outside a shop in Karaagac near Edirne. Large numbers of migrants have been heading towards Turkey's European borders since last week, when Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that authorities would no longer stop migrants from trying to enter the European Union. Migrants seeking to cross into Greece have been turned away by the Greek authorities, whose security forces have deployed tear gas, stun grenades and water cannons.
