Video: Refugees stone police in Macedonia, 18 injured



According to Macedonia’s interior ministry, 18 police officers were injured when they clashed with refugees on the country’s southern border.

The Associated Press added:

The clashes erupted after a 24-year-old Moroccan migrant suffered severe burns when he touched a high-voltage cable on the Greek side of the border.

The migrants, already angry about the fact that Macedonia has started to erect a fence on the border, started throwing stones at police officers who were cordoning off the official checkpoint. Some police vehicles were also damaged, the ministry says.
