Migrants turn to Slovenia after Hungary closes border

Thousands of refugees have arrived in Slovenia from Croatia, searching for a new route to northern Europe after Budapest closed off another border. Slovenian authorities organized transports to neighboring Austria.

Some 2,700 men, women and children entered Slovenian territory by trains and buses on Saturday, according to officials. Most of the migrants were from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, United Nations refugee agency spokeswoman Caroline van Buren said.

“They are fleeing from war… They are literally running for their lives,” she told the AFP news agency at the border crossing of Petisovci.
