Slovenia, Serbia place new restrictions on migrants' entry | Reuters

LJUBLJANA Slovenia's Interior Ministry said on Tuesday it would limit the entry of migrants to the country from midnight, allowing only those who planned to seek asylum in Slovenia or were coming for humanitarian reasons.

Each humanitarian case would be assessed individually, the ministry said in a statement.

Reacting to Slovenia's action, Serbia said it would harmonise its policies with those of the EU member states, adding that Slovenia's decision meant "the Balkan route for migrants is being closed."
