Migrants break through Macedonian police lines

Thousands of migrants have breached police lines at the Macedonia-Greece border.

A huge number of migrants - many of them refugees from the war in Syria - has built up in recent days, after Macedonia sealed its southern border and declared a state of emergency.

Most wish to travel through Macedonia and Serbia to reach northern Europe, via Hungary.
