Croatia, Serbia calm migrant border tensions after EU wades in

A Croatian police officer looks on as migrants and asylum seekers board a train in the eastern Croatian village of Tovarnik, near the border crossing with Serbia, on September 24, 2015Croatia and Serbia moved to ease tensions along their shared border on Friday after the EU’s powerful executive intervened in a bitter row sparked by Europe’s biggest postwar influx of refugee. Over the past week, the two neighbours have been locked in their worst spat since the 1990s Yugoslavian conflict, imposing tit-for-tat border restrictions over the human exodus seeking passage through the Balkans to northern Europe. Over the past 10 days since Hungary sealed its southern border with Serbia, nearly 60,000 refugees and migrants have crossed into Croatia, seeking an alternative route towards western Europe.
