A Pakistani man was stabbed to death on the Greek-Macedonian border on Monday as the European Commission pledged to increase security at a key point for migrants on their route from Greece to northern Europe.

The incident occurred near no-man’s-land on the border between Greece and Macedonia, where thousands of migrants of different nationalities gather daily, hoping to secure passage to other destinations in Europe.

Two other Pakistanis were hurt in the early morning attack allegedly carried out by Afghans, local police said.

Both survivors were hospitalised but one is in critical condition, they said.
