Greek police have completed clearing the Idomeni camp which served as a temporary home for thousands of migrants.
Many of the residents have been moved to official refugee centres near Thessaloniki.
Authorities have also cleared a railway line linking Greece with the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, which for months had been blocked by people protesting to be allowed passage to Northern Europe.
People want a better future, nobody wants to stay in the mud, everybody wants to create a new home, so many people see it very positively.
Vicky Markolefa, a spokesperson for Doctors Without Borders said: “People want a better future, nobody wants to stay in the mud, everybody wants to create a new home, so many people see it very positively, that it is a step forward for a better future, but what people keep saying is that they don’t want to move to another camp, they want to start their lives from scratch, they want to start building a home again, so camps are not home for people, they are just a temporary solution.”

Since the Balkan route was cut off, tens of thousands of migrants were stranded in overcrowded camps in Greece.
Activists say only a fraction of Idomeni residents had accepted to be re-housed in official camps.
Some are waiting for the Macedonian border to reopen, while others are taking their chances with people smugglers.
