ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Around 50 buses carrying some 2,500 migrants arrived at the Serbian border with Croatia on Monday (September 21) morning. After disembarking near the town of Sid, the stream of people, who had travelled from a reception centre in the Serbian town of Presevo, continued their journey on foot through nearby fields before reaching the official border crossing between Sid and the Croatian town of Tovarnik. Migrants gathered at the border crossing, currently closed for regular traffic, before being led through and boarding buses travelling to Tovarnik's train station and Beli Manastir, a town 100 kilometres from the Hungarian border. Croatian police said some 27,000 migrants have entered the country since September 16, a day after Hungary closed its border with Serbia. Croatian authorities have set up bus and train services, dropping hundreds of refugees off at border crossings with neighbouring Slovenia and Hungary, both members of EU's passport-free Schengen area.
