Several hundred people rallied in the northeastern Slovenian town of Kidricevo on Friday against the government plan to set up a camp there for migrants who might be sent back from Austria and Germany in the event of being denied asylum in the two countries.
The rally was held during a meeting between the local authorities and the state secretary for migrant issues, Bostjan Sefic, who said later that nothing had been decided yet and that talks would resume.
Reportedly, a refugee centre with the capacity to accommodate up to 4,000 people would be set up in this town of 1,300.
The protesters carried banners reading: "Migrants are not welcome" and "Migrants should be sent to Ljubljana".
