The immigrant crisis round the world has been building to fever pitch recently and Macedonia has now closed its border completely to illegal migrants. This development came after Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia announced tight new restrictions on migrant entry.

Thousands of migrants have built up on the Greek side of the Macedonian border causing scarcity of resources.

Macedonia had been allowing small numbers of Syrians and Iraqis through but stopped this after its neighbours tightened up their policies.

The Macedonian Interior Ministry stated that no migrants or refugees entered from Greece yesterday.

Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia said yesterday they would place new restrictions on the entry of migrants.

Around 1,000 migrants and refugees remain stranded in a refugee camp on the Macedonian side of the Serbian border while more than 400 are stranded in between the borders of Serbia and Macedonia.
