Refugees, migrants continue to arrive at Opatovac reception centre

Groups of new refugees and migrants keep on arriving at the Opatovac reception centre in eastern Croatia, with more than 6,000 arriving on Wednesday, which was one of the highest daily arrivals since they started entering Croatia in mid-September.

There are several thousand persons in Opatovac and more are expected to arrive from Serbia on Thursday. UNHCR relief which arrived on Wednesday is expected to make these cold and wet autumn days a bit easier for the refugees and migrants at Opatovac waiting to be taken by bus to Slovenia. The UHNCR provided 37 tonnes of relief - space blankets, raincoats, heaters and solar lamps.

Police are keeping under control the situation at Bapska, a village near the Serbian border where refugees and migrants are entering Croatia.
