Several busloads of people, most of them families with children, left the sprawling expanse of tents at Idomeni to move to state-run centers further south. By the latest count, at least 8,000 people were camped at Idomeni in difficult, overcrowded conditions with poor sanitation, ignoring previous calls by the government to leave.
