Evacuation of Greek northern border camp complete

Greek police on Thursday completed the evacuation of the sprawling border camp of Idomeni on Greece's northern border by removing nearly 800 migrants, a police source said. "Were done. No more people remain, just tents with supplies belonging to aid groups," the officer told AFP. Police say the last 783 people were bused out of the tent city Thursday and taken to official shelters in other parts of northern Greece. A total 3,000 people were taken to official shelters Tuesday and Wednesday. Just before the evacuation Idomeni had 8,400 occupants, according to official figures, and it's unclear where all those who didn't get the buses to other camps are. [AFP/AP]
