Tear gas on Turkey-Greece border as tensions rise

Tear gas was fired toward #migrants attempting to travel from #Turkey to #Greece on Monday, after they tried to make their way across the border.

The tension came as thousands of migrants attempted to make their way into Europe after Turkey opened its side of the frontier to migrants and refugees to leave the country.

Turkey declared its borders open to pressure the European Union into helping it handle the fallout from the war in neighboring Syria.
