Migrants injured in road smash

Macedonian police say 14 migrants were injured when the van they travelled in went off the road after the driver tried to escape a police checkpoint. The unhurt driver was arrested.

The injured migrants have been taken to hospital in the central Macedonian town of Veles. Two with more serious injuries - hip and leg fractures - were transferred to a hospital in the capital Skopje.

Macedonia has become one of the main transit routes for thousands of migrants from the Middle East and Africa.
