Hundreds of migrants marched out of a Greek transit camp, hiked for hours along muddy paths and crossed a rain-swollen river to get around a border fence and cross into Macedonia, where they were detained Monday, authorities said.A Macedonian police spokeswoman said the "several hundred" migrants who had crossed into Macedonia would be sent back to Greece. Earlier, Macedonian police said three migrants -- two men and a woman -- had drowned crossing a river near the Greek border that had been swollen by heavy rain.At least 12,000 people, including thousands of children, have been stranded in a sprawling tent city in northern Greece, their path to the EU blocked after Macedonia and other nations along the so-called Western Balkan route closed their borders.On Monday, more than 1,000 migrants streamed out of the camp, setting off to find a way around the twin border fences Macedonia built to keep them out.
