Hungary, Croatia to reopen railway border crossings

Hungary and Croatia will reopen three railway border crossings that were closed in the mid-October last year because of the refugee crisis, the Hungarian news agency MTI reported on Monday citing the Croatian and Hungarian interior ministers as saying.

It remains unknown how long the three crossings -- of Murakeresztur - Kotoriba, Gyekenyes - Koprivnica and Magyarboly – Beli Manastir -- will remain open.

In late 2015, Hungary set up a fence along its southern border with Serbia and Croatia to prevent the migrant entry.
