Croatia closes border crossings with Serbia

Officials in Zagreb said they had no choice after more than 10,000 people entered the country a day after Hungary fenced off its border with Serbia.

Meanwhile, Slovenia said it had stopped a group of migrants on a train and would return them to Croatia.

Huge numbers of people heading north from the Mediterranean have created a political crisis in the European Union.

Croatian officials said roads leading to the border crossings had also been shut.
