Greece pushes back migrants after Turkish border 'onslaught'

Greece pushes back migrans from TurkeyGreek police fired teargas to push back hundreds of stone-throwing migrants trying to cross over the border from Turkey on Saturday, as a crisis over Syria shifted onto the European Union’s doorstep.

Greece, which has tense relations with Turkey, accused Ankara of sending the migrants to the border post in an organized “onslaught” and said it would keep them out.

The EU said it was actively supporting Greece - and its neighbor Bulgaria, which also shares a border with Turkey - in protecting the bloc’s borders, but also sought to appease Ankara.

The crisis is the first big policy test for Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who was elected in July and promised a tougher stance on immigration.
