Croatia says a record number of 11,500 migrants have entered the country in one day in a sign that the flow of people toward Western Europe is not abating.

Interior Ministry spokesman Domagoj Dzigulovic said Sunday that the number of people who crossed into the country on Saturday was the highest in a single day since migrants started coming to Croatia in mid-September.

Migrants turned to Croatia after Hungary erected a barbed-wire fence along its border with Serbia. They now mainly travel from Turkey to Greece and then go north to Macedonia and Serbia before entering Croatia and move on to Slovenia and Austria. Most are aiming to get to Germany or Scandinavia.

Police say nearly 250,000 have crossed through Croatia since mid-September.
