Greece’s border with Macedonia has been shut to refugees

Aid packages are distributed in the makeshift refugee camp at the northern Greek border point of Idomeni, Greece. Greece’s border with Macedonia has been shut to refugees since earlier this month after a string of countries shut down the route which migrants used to go from Greece to central and northern Europe. Those stranded in the camp and surrounding fields have been living in dire conditions in small tents pitched in muddy fields.
