Croatia has opened its border with Serbia allowing thousands of cold,wet and exhausted people into the country.
Earlier thousands of migrants were stranded at the Serbo Croat frontier as Croatian police kept them at bay.
The Croatian government took the decision to ease the bottleneck late in the day.
Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovitch explained the decision:
“Obviously, yesterday we kept five to six thousand people from coming in on the other side, in Serbia. It’s apparent that this is no solution, so we will let them through, we will send them towards Slovenia.”
The tide of humanity will now troop toward Slovenia, which has limited the number of those entering the country to 2,500 a day.
