The hope of thousands of refugees and migrants of reaching western and northern Europe have been dashed yet again following Slovenia’s decision to temporarily suspend railway traffic from Croatia.

Authorities halted a train carrying at least 150 people at the Slovenian border station of Dobova on Thursday night and threatened to send them back to Croatia before allowing them proceed.

Despite the setbacks those on board were clear about where they are headed.

“We’re travelling to Europe. Germany, we’re travelling to Germany,” said one woman.

Meanwhile, the Slovenian Prime Minister, Miro Cerar, said Ljubljana was determined to abide by Schengen rules when dealing with people entering the country saying the country “cannot let people who do not meet conditions to enter the EU over the border.”
