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.
