Turkey-EU standoff: Greece blocks refugees stranded in Turkey

Turkey eased border restrictions for them to leave – but European countries are not allowing them in.

As fighting rages on in Syria, the Greek prime minister has warned that any refugees who try to enter the country will be turned back.

Thousands of migrants and refugees are trying to cross from Turkey after Ankara said it would no longer enforce its border.
