Athens, May 26 (DPA) Traffic was paralysed along a highway in northern Greece for several hours Wednesday after thousands of frogs suddenly jumped onto the road, startling drivers.
Drivers along the Egnatia Highway, which runs between the northern port city of Thessaloniki to the Turkish border on the Evros River, said the frogs appeared out of nowhere, causing a handful of traffic accidents and paralysing traffic.

Traffic police spent nearly two hours trying to clear the frogs from the highway.

Experts were at a loss to explain the bizarre phenomenon.
