Police say a group of five men stabbed a Pakistani man to death and wounded two others near Greece's border with Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM).

They said the incident occurred in the early hours of Monday in the Evzones area where thousands of refugees cross into FYROM to continue their journey toward other, more prosperous, European countries.

Police said the five men, believed to be Afghans, fatally stabbed one Pakistani man in the abdomen and wounded the other two while also taking money and a mobile phone from one of them.

The two wounded men are being treated at a local hospital.
