Battling howling winds, driving rain and icy temperatures, thousands of migrants today marched into Slovenia. Photographed from above, the refugees formed a single column as they crossed into the country from Croatia. It comes as Slovenia’s Prime Minister warns the EU will break up if leaders cannot agree on how to deal with crisis.
Nine days after Hungary’s move to seal its southern border drove unprecedented migrant flows into tiny Slovenia, Prime Minister Miro Cerar sent out a dramatic call to fellow central and eastern leaders in Brussels for emergency talks.He said: ‘If we don’t find a solution today, if we don’t do everything we can today, then it is the end of the European Union as such. If we don’t deliver concrete action, I believe Europe will start falling apart.'Since October 17, more than 62,000 migrants have arrived in Slovenia, with some 14,000 still passing through the country on today alone. Cerar said Croatia, which has already seen some 230,000 migrants pass through since mid-September, was still waiving migrants through into Slovenia without alerting Slovenia authorities.
