The sight of migrants trudging across Slovenian fields on foot is to end soon. Because the camps are over flowing, from now on the government is insisting that the refugees can only l enter Slovenia from Croatia if neighbouring Austria accepts them. Slovenian officials will then put them on trains, register them and only then will they be transported to the Austrian border.

One of the last to go on foot is Hassan a Syrian lawyer who escaped from ISIL.

He spoke to a euronews reporter describing the Islamist extremists as criminals who were not practicing true Islam or Sharia Law. He insists that when the war ends he wants to return home, if it is ever safe enough.

Since Hungary shut it border with Croatia ten days ago, the route to northern Europe for migrants has been through Slovenia. Over 86,000 have poured into the small country.

Hassan and his countrymen are determined to reach their destination …. he’s heading for Norway and hopefully a better life.
