Ministry of Interior in FYROM continues its operation for the prevention of illegal emigrants. Around 10 refugees have been stopped near the city of Manastir while they were being transported by smugglers.

According to police, refugees from Afghanistan were being taken from the Greek border to the Serb border in two cars registered in Tetovo. Police said that the patrol has raised suspicions on the cars and started to follow them, arresting the traffickers, while the refugees were sent to the Asylum Center in Skopje. Last week, police discovered an improvised refugee camp on the border with Serbia with tents and other things that refugees used before continuing their journey to Serbia. /balkaneu.com/
