Slove­nia to limit mi­grant num­bers

Daily Trust - - INTERNATIONAL -

Slove­nia will only al­low 2,500 mi­grants to cross its bor­ders daily - half the num­ber Croa­tia has asked for.

In­te­rior Min­istry Sec­re­tary of State Bost­jan Sefic said Slove­nia could not ac­cept Croa­tia’s re­quest to take 5,000, be­cause Aus­tria’s daily limit is 1,500.

Most mi­grants - many from Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq - are cross­ing Croa­tia and Slove­nia to reach western Europe.

The lim­i­ta­tion on num­bers has led to a build-up of mi­grants and refugees on Croa­tia’s bor­der with Ser­bia.
