BERKASOVO, Serbia – The latest news as migrants fleeing war or seeking a better life make their way across Europe by the tens of thousands. All times local.
Thousands of migrants are pouring into Croatia from Serbia as the influx of people hoping to reach Western Europe continued despite Hungary's decision to close its border with Croatia.
Shortly after midnight Friday, Hungarian police in full gear pulled a barbed-wire fence over a passage on the Croatian border where some 140,000 migrants have passed since mid-September.
Croatia has said it will redirect the migrants toward Slovenia, its other neighbor. First groups are expected to arrive at the border later on Saturday.
Slovenia has suspended regular train traffic with Croatia in anticipation of the influx.
Authorities in Slovenia have said they would accept controlled numbers of migrants as long as Austria and Germany keep their borders open. The small Alpine nation's national security council meets on the issue Saturday.
