epa05047884 Children’s toys hang on the wired fence at the borderline between Greece and The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, near Idomeni village, northern Greece, 29 November 2015. The Macedonian Army had on 16 November begun clearing terrain as it prepared the ground for a possible fence along the Greek border that would slow the flow of refugees crossing its terrain. The Macedonian army’s engineering units started putting up the fence expected to be finished within 24 hours and to be over four kilometers long. Macedonian official state that the border will stay open and all the refugees that are from the regions overrun with military conflicts will be let through. Macedonia, Serbia and Croatia had started restricting access to migrants on the Balkan route to Syrians, Iraqis and Afghans. It is a part of a joint effort to reduce the number of asylum seekers streaming into the European Union. EPA/SOTIRIS BARBAROUSIS
