About 2,000 migrants arrived in the eastern Croatian border town of Tovarnik early Friday morning and are now at the railway station waiting to be bussed to reception centres, police said unofficially.

Given that the border crossings with Serbia in Vukovar-Srijem and Osijek-Baranja counties are closed to all traffic, police are collecting migrants along the so-called green line and taking them to the train station in Tovarnik.

An estimated 8,000 migrants from the Middle East have arrived in Tovarnik since Wednesday morning when an initial wave of migrants hit Croatia after Hungary closed its border with Serbia.

According to information from the Ministry of the Interior, 11,003 migrants had entered Croatia by 10pm on Thursday after seven border crossings with Serbia were closed.
