Hundreds of migrants have spent the night in rain and cold at Croatia's border with Slovenia after Croatia sent a train there despite Slovenia's refusal to take any more people into the country.

The train carrying some 1,800 people arrived in the early hours of the morning Monday. Croatian police let the migrants get off the train but Slovenian police were deployed to the border and put up fences to prevent a mass entry.

For hours, migrants — including women and children — sought ways to sneak into Slovenia, while authorities allowed in only small groups. Croatian police on the other side prevented migrants from turning back.

Slovenian police said Monday that 150 women and children from the train have been registered and let into the country. The border incident has caused a diplomatic spat between Croatia and Slovenia.
