Macedonian police fired tear gas, rubber bullets and stun grenades into a crowd of hundreds of migrants at the Greek border Sunday.
The clash broke out after migrants — located in a large camp in northern Greece — reportedly heard rumors that Macedonia would be opening its borders. Macedonian police denied the rumors, and migrants began trying to scale the fence.
Winds blew tear gas into the camp, where more than 10,000 migrants have been stranded since Macedonia and other Balkan countries closed their borders in February.
