BELGRADE- Croatia reopened the Berkasovo border crossing with Serbia on Tuesday morning, but allows the passage of refugees into its territory very slowly, in small groups, Radio Television of Serbia reported.
During the first hour, about 150 crossed the border and were transported to the Croatian territory in police vans.
The area in front of the border crossing is several hundred meters long and full of people. Most of the refugees spent the night in the open, trying to keep warm with blankets and foils they received on entering into Serbia.
UNHCR and Red Cross representatives said last night was one of “torment” but went peacefully, while new refugees continue to arrive by buses from Presevo, southern Serbia.
