Hungary Seals Border with Croatia

You might remember a few weeks ago when we told you about the refugee crisis in Europe, where many people are crossing into Europe from the Middle East looking for a safer place to live.

And we've got an update on that story. Migrants arriving in the country of Hungary are now being diverted to Slovenia, after Hungary closed its border with Croatia.

Hungary sealed its southern border to stem the thousands of refugees and migrants arriving daily. This comes just a month after they closed their border with Serbia. Thousands of people have poured into Hungary in recent months, as they head for Northern Europe. The country says it is will allow people to cross the border, if they have the legal right to do so.
