Six Iranian migrants have sewn their mouths shut during a protest near the village of Idomeni at the Greek-Macedonia border.

They took the drastic action as several hundred migrants, many from Iran and Morocco, protested for a fourth straight day at the border.

Macedonia and other Balkan countries have toughened the criteria for border crossings in the wake of the deadly November 13 attacks in Paris.
