Serbia-Hungary Migrant Buses 'Diverted to Croatia Border'
Buses which until recently were in charge of bringing migrants from Southern Serbia to the border with Hungary have now been diverted to Croatia, Serbian media outlets report.
B92 radio cites its reporter in Presevo, who was allegedly told by a driver that all migrants should be transported to ?id, a northwestern town in Vojvodida located close to the Croatian border.
It also quotes RTS as saying that "ten more" buses in Presevoo parked at the collecting point for migrants were supposed to travel to ?id.
This comes as Hungary is completely sealing off its borders with neighboring Serbia and is planning to extend a fence to its border with Romania as part of measures it believes will help it cope with the migrant influx from the Middle East.
According to the Bulgarian News Agency, N1 TV channel's Croatian unit reported on Tuesday that with Hungary closing its border it was becoming "more evident" the flow of migrants would redirect to the country.
