Around 14,000 migrants and refugees on Saturday remained stranded at Idomeni, on Greece’s border with Macedonia.

Greek authorities are hoping to relocate the migrants and refugees, who staged a protest on a rail track by the camp, in the coming weeks.

Inhabitants of the over-crowded Idomeni camp sat across the track and held up makeshift signs calling on Macedonia to open its borders.

Greece’s borders were sealed off to migrants and refugees a week ago.

Since then, the number stranded in Greece has climbed to above 42,000.
