Migrants clash with Greek police and camp out at Turkish-Greek border

"Migrants clashed with Greek police on Sunday after Turkey officially declared its western borders open to those hoping to head into the European Union.

Police could be seen patrolling the Greek border in Kastanies as dozens of migrants lined its fence, some lighting fires and throwing rocks as they waited to see where they could go next.
As migrant numbers grew over the weekend, Greek authorities fired tear gas and stun grenades to prevent repeated attempts by the crowds massed at the border crossing.

The United Nations reported at least 13,000 people had gathered on Turkey's land border by Saturday night, the vast majority apparently from Afghanistan."
