At least five people were hurt Friday when Macedonian police threw noise grenades to drive back migrants from the country's border with Greece, the latest flashpoint in Europe's growing refugee crisis.

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.
