Migrant crisis: Hungary closes border with Croatia to refugees

  • Hungary has closed its Croatian border to refugees in an attempt to prevent thousands of migrants from crossing over as Europe struggles to find a solution to the migrant crisis.

    Hungarian authorities sealed the informal Zakany crossing with barbed wire. According to a government spokesperson, the border had been closed to economic migrants, but people “can still cross the border legally and seek asylum”.

    The official border posts of Beremend and Letenje are still open for those having valid papers.
