    Over 150 refugees cross Croatia border in search of new route

    Sept.16, Budapest: More than 150 migrants those stranded on Serbia's border with Hungary have crosses into Croatia on Wednesday making a similar trip.

    Croatia said that it would allow migrants to travel on to northern Europe - opening up a new route a day after Hungary sealed its border with Serbia.
    The development came as German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday called for a special EU refugee summit, urging unity in the European response to the crisis.

    Croatian police said they were registering refugees entering from Serbia and would transport them to reception centres near the capital Zagreb.

    Earlier on Wednesday, a group of 30-40 mostly Syrian or Afghan nationals arrived at the Serbian town of Sid near the Croatian border. They had travelled by bus from the Macedonian border at Presevo, 500km to the south.
