Hungary May Seal Croatian Border by Early Next Week, Index Says

Hungary expects to seal off its border with Croatia this weekend or early next week depending on when fortifications are completed, Index news website reported, citing Antal Rogan, incoming chief of staff to Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Hungary is extending the barrier already in place at the Serbian frontier aimed at repelling migrants seeking to enter the European Union.

After the fence is completed, Hungary will no longer take any refugees transported to the border by Croatian authorities, Rogan said according to Index.
