Greek police managed to remove all migrants from the  area of Eidomeni and the trains  can move again to their destination, after almost 20 days of blockage due to the presence of about 5.000 refugees and migrants in the area. (After FYROM accepted  as refugees only Syrians Afghans and Iraqis, there remained many Iranians,  Moroccans, Algerians  and other nationalities, mainly people who took their chances to migrate to European countries taking advantage of the Syrian flow.

There were minor incidents during the effort to move migrants to the buses that would take them  to Athens. One Iranian was stabbed by another Iranian but his life is not in danger. Police   detained some journalists for no obvious reason  There were detained also  some  migrants because they resisted their transfer.
