IDOMENI, Greece (Reuters) - Hundreds of migrants streamed out of a camp near the northern Greek border on Monday to try to find a way around a border fence blocking their way into Macedonia, a Reuters witness said.

A large group of migrants marched away from the sprawling tent city near Idomeni, where at least 12,000 people have been stranded in filthy conditions since Macedonia and other nations blocked their route north along the so-called Western Balkan route, according to a Reuters TV crew.
