Hungary closes border to migrants as EU deal looks shaky

Hungarian police and soldiers close the border between Hungary and Croatia with barbed wire and a fence in Botovo on October 16, 2015Zákány (Hungary) (AFP) – Hungary closed its border with Croatia to migrants early Saturday in a bid to block the path of streams of refugees desperate to get to northern Europe, while a much-hyped EU deal to stem the crisis looked shaky. “The ‘green border’ has been closed (to economic migrants) but you can still cross the border legally and seek asylum,” government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs told AFP. Earlier Friday, Croatia said it would begin diverting migrants on its territory to Slovenia after Hungary announced it would close the border — a key crossing point on the travellers’ route since Budapest sealed its frontier with Serbia in mid-September.
