The migrants were desperately heading to another border – this time with Slovenia

Hungarian Government said it closed the border to protect the safety of Hungarian citizens.

The blockade at the Hungary-Croatia border forced thousands of migrants to divert to Slovenia where new migrants will be registered and most likely redirected to Austria.

Slovenia cancelled all trains from so migrants could not enter the country that way. Experts fear the move will leave thousands of migrants stranded in Croatia, which is not really equipped’ to deal with them, plunging Europe into further turmoil.

Hungary has vowed to come down heavily on those who try to enter the country illegally.

Police used tear gas and water cannon to control crowds massed at its border with Serbia when that was closed last month.
