At least five migrants were slightly hurt Friday when Macedonian police threw noise grenades to drive back refugees from the country's border with Greece, an AFP photographer at the scene said.More than 3,000 mostly Syrian refugees are stuck in no-man's land near the Greek village of Eidomeni after Macedonia declared a state of emergency Thursday and sent troops to help stem the flow of migrants attempting to cross the small Balkan country to reach northern Europe.Police in riot gear fired the grenades as they faced hundreds of migrants, included women and children, gathered at the border fence.Police had earlier prevented reporters from accessing no-man's land where Thursday officers had been in a standoff with about 1,500 migrants and refugees who wanted to cross into Macedonia.
