Chaotic scenes at Greece/FYROM border | MSF receives 10 people injured by stun grenades

MSF has received 10 people injured by the stun grenades: 6 people with minor injuries were treated on the spot, while 4 people had to be sent to the hospital (3 with injuries from the stun grenades and one who had also been beaten by FYROM army personnel). In addition, our medical teams have treated more than 100 patients yesterday, which is the most in one single day since we started activities in Idomeni in April. Three patients were referred to the hospital: a pregnant woman with severe pain and bleeding, a one year old baby from Syria that had an operation in the head a few months ago and needed hospitalization, and a 24 year old refugee who said he had been beaten by Macedonian police, four patients who had fainted due to exhaustion, heat and hunger. Our teams have never seen before so many people gathering at the border, right now there are more than 3.000 people there
