Soldiers are preparing a fence at a border crossing at Bogorodica - called Point 59 - intended to channel the movement of migrants and prevent unregistered border crossings. Another fence will be set up stretching several kilometers up to the village of Selemli.
The border fence was authorized by the Macedonian National Security Council at a meeting held Monday in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Paris.

The fence allows migrants to enter Macedonia only through Point 59 and continue towards the refugee camp for registration.
Up to 8,000 migrants cross into Macedonia every day from Greece, to continue their journey towards Serbia onto northern and western European countries.
Since Wednesday, Serbian authorities only allowed select migrants from regions such as Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq to enter its territory. This left nearly 300 migrants in limbo as they were assessed to be economic migrants.
Macedonian Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikola Poposki said Macedonia received demands from European countries to improve border controls.
