October 18, 2013

Border guards from 26 nations began arriving on November 2 in northeastern Greece to help curb a wave of illegal immigrants crossing over from Turkey, European border agency Frontex said. Coordinated by Greek police, some 170 guards will be on hand and until the end of December to monitor borders and scout for illegal immigrants, Frontex spokesman Michal Parzyszek said.
