VIOLENCE erupted once more today as a mob of more than 500 migrants rioted and attempted to tear down border fences and flood into Europe.

Macedonian police used tear gas to push back hundreds of migrants from the border at a sprawling refugee camp on the Greek side of the frontier.

Tear gas was fired on a crowd of more than 500 people who had gathered at the fence at the makeshift camp of Idomeni.

A Macedonian official who asked to remain anonymous said that a large group of migrants left Idomeni camp in the morning and stormed towards the fence.

He said: “They threw rocks at the Macedonian police. The police fired tear gas in response.

“The migrants were pushing against the fence but standing on the Greek side of the border. The fence is still there, they have not broken through.”

More than 10,000 migrants and refugees have been living at the sprawling tent camp in Greece since February, stranded there after a cascade of border shutdowns throughout the Balkans.
