Around 30 Macedonians from the village of Ovcarani, northern Greece, staged protests in front of Greek military training site in the village of Zabrdeni urging the army to pull out of the area.

Shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday, Macedonians set up roadblocks to avert a convoy of four military vehicles from deploying in the area.

The police and public prosecutor arrived at the site to negotiate with protesters. The locals left the site shortly before midnight.

They massed again on Wednesday to voice their discontent with intimidation by Greek army and the military exercise held near the villages populated with Macedonians.

Three special police units were dispatched at the site to thwart the protesters from entering the training site.
