A child holds a banner picturing the body of a dead child laying on a beach during a migrant and refugee demonstration behind a fence and barbed wire at the Greek-Macedonian border, near Gevgelija, on February 27, 2016. Macedonia denied all passage to Afghans and ramped up document controls for Syrians and Iraqis. On February 26, there were some 4,000 people waiting to cross at the border post of Idomeni, local police said. Greek authorities have been regulating the flow of refugees but hundreds have set out on foot for the border, determined to continue their journey despite being told they will be turned back.
