Macedonian Police Officer Hits Migrants With Baton [VIDEO]

About 7,000 refugees and migrants struggle Thursday to cross Greece’s northern border into Macedonia in what Greek police said was the largest single wave they had seen so far.

Macedonian police formed a human chain on the border to limit the flow of refugees into more manageable groups, letting families with young children cross first. Occasionally they used batons and shields to push back migrants attempting to rush through ahead of their turn.
