Aerial shots show large roadblock on key M4 highway in Syria’s Idlib | AFP

Aerial images show a large roadblock across the key M4 highway in Idlb province near the village of Al-Nayrab in Syria. The giant trench dug across the road connecting the Idlib crossroads town of Saraqib with coastal Latakia appeared overnight, less than a day after Russia and Turkey launched a first but brief joint military patrol along the road following a ceasefire agreement earlier this month. Several hundred pro-rebel demonstrators took to the highway near Al-Nayrab on Sunday to protest the patrol, setting tyres ablaze and piling tree branches across the thoroughfare.

Migrants Trying to Enter Europe Are About to Be Stuck Between the Greek Army and Turkish Police

EDIRINE, Turkey — Thousands of refugees and migrants from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Iran and elsewhere have been trying to push their way across the Turkish border with Greece to find their way to Europe, only to find themselves forced back with tear gas, rubber bullets and live ammunition.

On Wednesday, Turkish officials say at least one person was shot dead by Greek security forces, but Greek authorities have denied the killing.

VICE News spoke to half a dozen refugees today who witnessed Greek security forces firing live rounds at migrants rushing the border fence at the Pazarkule crossing early this morning.
