OPATOVAC, Croatia – 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 stranded in fog and cold weather in Serbia and Croatia after Hungary closed its border with Croatia and the flow of people was redirected to a route via Slovenia.
Slovenia has said it will only take in 2,500 people a day, significantly slowing down the movement.
Croatian police said Sunday nearly 4,000 people remained in the refugee camp in Opatovac, where some 50 buses were parked waiting to take the migrants toward Slovenia, the next step on their journey.
Across the border in Serbia, hundreds of people have been sitting in some 20 buses since early hours Sunday waiting to cross to Croatia. More are expected to arrive during the day.
The migrant route switched to Slovenia on Saturday after Hungary closed its border for the influx.
