Thousands of migrants are pouring into Croatia, setting up a new path toward Western Europe after Hungary used tear gas and water cannons to keep them out of its territory.

Croatian police said Thursday that some 5,650 migrants have come into the country since first groups started arriving early on Wednesday. Authorities have been using trains and buses to transfer them to refugee centers.

Croatian authorities say they are forming a special body to deal with the influx. Interior Minister Ranko Ostojic says that the country has the situation under control. But he warned that "if huge waves start coming through Serbia we must consider different moves."
