P. Kingsley: Idomeni: Greek riot police move in to clear refugee camp

24 mei 2016 – No violence reported as Greek authorities order 8,500 residents of Europe’s largest informal refugee camp to leave

Greek police have begun to clear Europe’s largest informal refugee camp, where thousands of people have been stranded for months. About 400 riot police entered the camp at dawn on Tuesday to order the approximately 8,500 camp residents to leave. By sunset, around 2,000 had left voluntarily in 42 government buses for government-run camps, but thousands were still left in Idomeni overnight.
