About 1,000 migrants are stuck at the main border crossing into Macedonia from Greece, denied entry due to their nationalities in contravention of international law, the United Nations said.The International Organization for Migration (IOM) reported earlier that the number of refugees and migrants reaching Greek islands, the most common entry point to Europe, fell to 155 on Sunday while 478 arrived at the ports of Athens and Kavala -- far fewer than the daily average for the past few months.UNHCR had no information on whether the border curbs were linked to security fears over reports that one of ISIS militants who attacked Paris on Nov. 13, killing 130 people, may have entered Europe posing as a migrant.About 858,805 refugees and migrants from the Middle East, Africa and Asia have arrived in Europe so far this year by sea, while 3,548 have died or gone missing, according to IOM figures.Only 148 refugees have been relocated from Italy and Greece to other EU countries under a plan for transferring 160,000 agreed by EU leaders in September, Edwards said.
