Serbia: Slovenia to bar migrants without EU visas from midnight

Slovenia will not allow migrants without Schengen visas to pass through its borders starting at midnight, Blic online newspaper reports, citing a statement from the Serbian Interior Ministry.

"That practically closes the Balkan route," the ministry statement reads.

Serbia will not allow migrants to become trapped on its territory and plans to implement the same rules of entry, the ministry says.
