Spanish reporters spend night in cell in Macedonia whilst covering refugee exodus from Greece
thinkSPAIN , Tuesday, March 15, 2016

REPORTERS from Spain covering the attempts by refugees to cross the Greek-Macedonian border by river have just been released after spending the night in police cells.

Around 30 TV journalists, including the pictured Ane Irazabal from Basque channel ETB were arrested in Macedonia and taken to the station in Gevgelija, accused of crossing the border from nearby Idomeni in Greece illegally.

ETB paid the fine of €250 levied on Sra Irazabal in the hope of securing her release.

A team from Spain's sixth channel, La Sexta, were also arrested in the same area, according to the media production firm Atresmedia, and online Spanish daily newspaper Público announced its reporter, Alberto Silicia, who had gone to Macedonia with a cameraman, had been arrested.

They are said to have been released earlier today (Tuesday).

Around 2,000 refugees and migrants from the Middle East crossed the border from Idomeni to Gevgelija to get from Greece to Macedonia via a river some five kilometres from the border yesterday in a massive exodus from the Greek camp, where food is beginning to run short and fights are breaking out as hungry refugees battle to feed their families.
