3rd refugee shelter torched in Sweden in 6 days



A string of suspected arson attacks have hit three facilities intended to house asylum seekers in Sweden this week alone. The country is preparing to receive almost double the amount of refugees this year than the previous record, set in 1992.
An old school building in Onsala in the affluent area of Kungsbacka, some 30 km south of Gothenburg, caught fire on Saturday night. Twenty firefighters responded to the emergency call.

“Half the building has been damaged by fire,” said Mikael Lindgren, the lead operator of the emergency services in Greater Gothenburg, as cited by The Local.

he officials did not immediately identify the cause of the fire, saying a technical examination of the site was necessary.

The incident happened just a day after a school in Smaland, which was to be used to accommodate refugees, was destroyed by a fire.

Late on Tuesday, a building in Arlov Skane, where children seeking asylum in Sweden were meant to be hosted, was badly damaged by a blaze. The incident happened a day before its scheduled opening.

There have been 14 suspected arson attacks on refugee centers in Sweden since the start of the year.


Sweden, a country with one of the most generous welfare systems in Europe, has already received more refugees this year that any year in the past, surpassing a record set in 1992 when 84,016 people asked for asylum following fighting in the Balkans.

Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said Friday that the number may rise higher than 150,000 by the end of the year.

Looks like people should be investing in fence-building companies...

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-10-18/german-police-union-chief-channels-donald-trump-demands-building-border-fence-around



Quote:

Popular unease with Merkel's actions has also manifested itself in tumbling support for Merkel's CDU, which according to a Bild poll, has seen its approval rating drop to 37%, the lowest since May 2013.

But until now, despite rising anger, there has been no firm recommendation how to approach the unprecedented inflow of Syrian migrants, among which there are increasingly more frequent media reports of terrorists, either of ISIS or al Qaeda origin.

That changed earlier today when none other than Germany's police union chief, Rainer Wendt, called for a fence to be built along the country's border to stem the flow of migrants.

Wendt's call is simple: end Europe's customs union, one where cold war border fences are once again the norm.

He told the "Welt am Sonntag" newspaper that after Germany led by example, other countries would then follow suit: the police union chief said the move would trigger a chain reaction in other European countries which have seen hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria and elsewhere flood over their borders.

"If we close our borders in this way, Austria will also close the border with Slovenia. That's exactly the effect we need," Wendt, the chairman of the German Police Union (DPolG), is quoted as saying.



Quote:


"Our internal (law and) order is at risk...Someone needs to pull the emergency brake now," he cautioned.
Germany expects more than 800,000 people to apply for asylum this year and has recently toughened its regulations surrounding the asylum process. But Merkel has ruled out placing limits on the number of refugees taken in, adding that she was convinced the country could cope.

The southern German state of Bavaria, which has been inundated with refugees crossing from Austria, has threatened legal action against the Federal government, adding that it may consider sending migrants back across the border.

Syria refugees to cost 'up to £23k each' in first year in UK
By Simon Dedman
BBC Essex political reporter

Each Syrian refugee is set to cost up to £23,420 in the first year of their relocation to the UK, figures seen by BBC News suggest.
The Home Office has confirmed the figures, contained in a briefing document from an Essex local authority, are accurate.
An adult benefit claimant from Syria will cost £23,420, or £10,720 if they are able to work, the document said.
The government has pledged to take in 20,000 Syrian refugees by 2020.
It has also provided £1bn in aid to Syria, with an extra £100m given to charities to help thousands displaced by the conflict.
More than 11 million people have been forced from their homes in Syria as a result of fighting between President Bashar al-Assad's forces and those opposed to his rule, as well as jihadist militants from the so-called Islamic State. Thousands of these people have since been making their way to European countries, including the UK.
Medical care
The documents suggest the cost of taking in Syrian children ranges from £10,720 for under threes to £16,220 for school age children between the ages of five and 18.

The cost per Syrian migrant to local councils is estimated to be £8,520 per person, along with costs of £12,700 for benefits and £2,200 for medical care to be funded by central government.
Another document seen by BBC Essex, entitled "Syrian Resettlement Scheme - Funding Process", states the government will give each council £8,520 per refugee.
The figures suggest central government will cover the full cost to local authorities - but some politicians have warned this will not be the case.
....more at link.

If that is what is being admitted, one suspect the true cost is far higher....

One of the 84 Church of England bishops who publicly pressed David Cameron to allow more Syrian refugees into Britain last night said he would not take any into his own six-bedroom mansion. The Bishop of Manchester, the Right Rev David Walker, urged ordinary people to welcome asylum seekers from the war-torn country and said it would be ‘a sad reflection’ on society if they did not. He claimed, however, that it would be wrong for a refugee family to move into his own recently refurbished house because of the language barrier and their ‘alien culture

Several German cities saw PEGIDA (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the Occident) protests on Monday, with the main event being held in Dresden, the movement’s “birthplace.” Over 20,000 protesters gathered at the rally in the capital of Saxony, according to Sächsische Zeitung.

“Money for our children instead of money for your asylum seekers!” and “Merkel has to go!” read the banners of the protesters.

An Austrian state prosecutor says a suspect has been detained in connection with spraying a migrant with an irritant.

Erich Habitzl identified the suspect Monday as a 34-year old Danish male but declined to provide his name in keeping with Austrian privacy laws.

He is suspected of attacking a migrant last week at a train station south of Vienna with pepper spray or an irritant gas.

Habitzl says authorities have requested court approval to place the man in investigative custody. He says the suspect is refusing to cooperate with legal officials.

A volunteer worker also was sprayed while trying to protect the migrant.
A photographer working for Agence France-Presse says he has been assaulted by Croatian border police who also grabbed his cameras and threw them into the mud.

Andrej Isakovic said Monday that the incident happened while he was covering the migrant backlog at the Serbian-Croatian border.

Isakovic said two Croatian policemen first demanded the camera's memory cards. When he refused "they stormed at me, pulled me down to the ground, grabbed both of my cameras and threw them in the mud."

Isakovic says he wasn't on Croatian territory during the incident, and called the action "totally unprovoked." He said another freelance photographer was also assaulted.

Croatian police said in a statement that the two crossed illegally into Croatia with the migrants. They say policemen issued warnings and sent them back with their equipment.
Croatian police are less polite than, say, Hungarian or Slovenian cops, they tend to hit first and ask questions later. They are also ultra-sensitive re journalists. LL

I doubt if the Croatian police greatly care, LL - an increasing numbers of Europeans don't. Some interesting figures here:

I genuinely don't know what else the bien pensants expected to happen, when they are threatening to confiscate people's property to house 'migrants', and importing en masse people that hate everything that European democracy stands for.

It was as predictable as sunrise.

https://www.rt.com/news/319150-denmark-muslims-koran-laws/

4 in 10 Danish Muslims want Koran to be used in Denmark’s laws

Almost 40 percent of Danish Muslims would like to see the country’s laws based partly on the Koran, according to a poll for Jyllands-Posten. Anti-immigration supporters say the results show “the number of Muslims in Denmark is a problem.”
The survey, conducted by Wilke for Jyllands-Posten, found that over 10 percent of Muslims asked said that Danish law should be solely based on the Koran, while over one-quarter believe the country’s legislation should be a mixture of the Islamic holy book and the Danish constitution.

An Aarhus-based imam, Radwan Mansour, is also in favor of having a mixture of laws from the Koran and the Danish constitution, saying that there would be no conflict between the two.

“If this was an Islamic country, it should be the Koran. But Denmark is not an Islamic country – we don’t decide – so I think it should be both the Koran and the constitution. When it comes to justice, the sharing of resources and so on, there is a fine accordance [between the two],” The Local quoted him as telling Jyllands-Posten.

The anti-immigration Danish People’s Party seized on the results of the poll, saying it showed “the number of Muslims in Denmark is a problem.”

“When one believes that the Koran should play an essential role in legislation and for life in society, and when one believes – as previous polls have shown – that women of a certain age should be covered up, then one does not wish to be a part of Danish society and it is delusional to act like they were here first and it is the rest of us who came later. It is incredibly rude,” said Martin Henriksen, a spokesman for the Danish People’s Party.

Henriksen was referring to a recent survey, which found that 77 percent of Danish Muslims believe that the Koran should be “followed completely.” This was a 15 percent rise from when the same poll was conducted in 2006 and something of a surprise to Jens Peter Frolund Thomsen, a social studies professor at the University of Aarhus who specializes in the relationship between Danes and immigrants.

“Here is an indicator that religious beliefs interfere in some political opinions and attitudes. Our secular society, in which political power and the rule of law are hailed above all else, is something that many have reservations about. It shows that democratic norms haven’t taken root amongst all immigrant groups,” Thomsen told Jyllands-Posten.

If people wish to live by islamic laws, I would say there is a simple solution.

Go and live in islamic countries, like Saudi and Iran, not Western Europe.

Marine Le Pen goes on trial charged with anti-Muslim hate speech
French Front National party leader made comments at a rally in 2010, prompting anti-racism and human rights groups to bring case against her

Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right Front National, is to appear in court in Lyon on hate speech charges after she compared Muslims praying in the streets to the Nazi occupation.

Four anti-racism and human rights groups have brought a case against her on charges of “incitement to discrimination, violence or hatred towards a group of people on the basis of their religion”.

The trial begins on Tuesday and it is the first time Le Pen has faced charges for hate speech, although her father and party founder, Jean-Marie Le Pen, has several convictions under the charge, including one for contesting crimes against humanity after saying the Nazi occupation of France was not “particularly inhumane”.

Le Pen made her comments in a speech during a party rally in Lyon in 2010. She referred to “street prayers” after there had been reports of Muslims praying in public in three French cities, including Paris, because of a lack of mosques or a lack of space in local prayer rooms.

She said: “I’m sorry, but for those who really like to talk about the second world war, if we’re talking about occupation, we can also talk about this while we’re at it, because this is an occupation of territory,” she told supporters, prompting waves of applause.

“It’s an occupation of swaths of territory, of areas in which religious laws apply … for sure, there are no tanks, no soldiers, but it’s an occupation all the same and it weighs on people.”

When the European parliament lifted Le Pen’s parliamentary immunity in July 2013, a preliminary inquiry was opened.

The penalty for inciting racial hatred in France is up to a year in prison and a €45,000 (£33,000) fine.



I can think of few things better designed to help make Ms le Pen the next president of France than the bien pensants turning her into a martyr.

Cologne gang 'stole from churches to fund Isis'
Published: 20 Oct 2015 15:56 GMT+02:00

Facebook Twitter Google+ reddit
Eight young men appeared in court in Cologne on Tuesday charged with robbing churches and schools to finance Isis' religious war in Syria.

When they broke into churches they stole collection boxes, crosses and other objects “dedicated to church services and religious veneration” prosecutors allege.

From the schools, the men stole laptops, money and a cash card, which they used to finance jihadist fighters in the Syrian civil war, alleged chief prosecutor Nadja Gudermann.

Security measures were heightened around the Cologne city court as the men were brought from police detention.

During the burglaries, which took place between 2011-14, the men are alleged to have stolen €19,000 worth of goods and often seriously damaged the premises before they left.

How much of the money actually reached fighters in Syria is unknown and will not be addressed in the trial.

The central figure in the gang was a Moroccan, prosecutors say, who also uploaded a video to YouTube encouraging Muslims to fight for Isis. He himself appears in the German section of the video.

Prosecutors allege that the 26-year-old Moroccan travelled to Syria where he was trained in a military camp.

Three of the men are also charged with supporting a foreign terrorist organisation and will face a concurrent trial in Düsseldorf

Refugee crisis: Nine-month pregnant 14-year-old goes missing amid anger the Netherlands is allowing child brides from Syria to seek asylum
Save the Children reported an 'alarming increase' in the number of child marriages within Syrian refugee communities

A pregnant 14-year-old girl has gone missing from a Dutch asylum centre.

She is thought to be a child bride and disappeared from Ter Apel asylum centre two months ago.

Police say Fatema Alkasem was nine months pregnant and may be in need of medical care.

The Netherlands currently faces a problem in providing asylum for girls who married in Syria but are below the Dutch age of consent, which some argue condones pedophilia.

As many as 20 girls between the ages of 13 and 15 have been given legal permission to join their older partners in Dutch asylum centres, regional news channel RTV-Noord reports.

http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/10/19/stop-luring-people-europe-syrian-archbishop-tells-west/

Europe should stop luring Syrians away from their homeland and instead focus on ending the civil war, the Archbishop of Aleppo has said.

Hitting back at Anglican bishops who signed a letter calling for Britain to take in tens of thousands more migrants, Archbishop Jean-Clément Jeanbart told BBC Radio 4: “If they look to our country, our communities there, we suffer when people leave our country.

“What I would ask everybody to do is to try our best to stop feeding and encouraging radicalism and fundamentalism, and find a political solution where compromise may be done.”

His comments come after a group of 84 bishops from the Church of England wrote a letter to the prime minister last month calling for him to take 50,000 migrants over the space of five years. Although initially private, the letter was made public this weekend and appeared in all the Sunday papers after the bishops did not receive a reply.

Paul Butler, Bishop of Durham, said: “It is disheartening that we have not received any substantive reply despite an assurance from the prime minister that one would be received.”

However, when asked if the Anglican bishops’ suggestion of taking more migrants would harm Syria, Archbishop Jeanbart responded: “Yes of course. It harms Syria and harms the refugees.”

The Syrian Archbishop added that he did not blame the migrants for fleeing Syria as they fear for their lives. However, if the West wishes to stem the tide it must bring peace to the country.

“As long as the radicalism and killing continue, of course they are afraid. Perhaps if the West tried to find a way, people who want to could live together in our country. I ask them to push towards a political solution so we may have peace and safety.

“I do not contest the right or Christian duty to call for a charitable act, but it is not just a question of accommodating people.”

Last week, Archbishop Jeanbart, whose diocese covers the Syrian provinces of Aleppo, Idlib, Raqqa, Deir ez-Zor and Hassake, begged for Western intervention to save Syria’s Christians from “fundamentalist, jihadist mercenaries” who are “killing anyone who would speak of freedom, citizenship, religious freedom and democracy.”

“We are facing the rage of an extremist jihad; we may disappear soon,” he warned, adding: “Christian communities are the prime target of the so-called caliphate’s religious cleansing campaign.”

The British parliament is set to vote on launching airstrikes against Islamic State in Syria in the coming weeks.



I don't remember hearing a single word of protest from Washington when their pet terrorists were wiping out ancient Christian communities in Syria....

And if the UK decides to bomb anything, I doubt very much if it will be ISIS. No, it will Syrian infrastructure, just like the US bombing water supplies and power stations last week.

5:30 p.m. The European Union's border agency says that members of the bloc have agreed to provide 291 border guards to be deployed immediately to Greece and Italy to help identify and register migrants.

The Warsaw-based agency said Tuesday that the 291 guards amount to about a fourth of what it had requested to handle the record number of migrants arriving in Europe. In a statement, the agency's director, Fabrice Leggeri, said he hopes that countries will continue to volunteer more guards even though a deadline for the call has passed.

He said, "I hope we can move much closer to our goal."

Slovenian police used pepper spray to try to prevent some 200 migrants from jumping ahead of a long line of people waiting to enter Austria, but it took a barrier set up by Austrian police to stop them.

The migrants, who were sent to the back of the line, were trying to get to buses waiting in the Austrian border village of Spielfeld that were taking them to emergency shelters in Klagenfurt, 140 kilometers (87 miles) west.

Austrian police spokesman Joachim Huber said in Spielfeld that despite the presence of 700 migrants and the expected arrival of hundreds more "I think we are well prepared, so we can handle the new rush." Huber said another tent was being set up in Spielfeld to accommodate more migrants.

4:25 p.m.

Norway's justice minister says asylum-seekers arriving from Russia can be returned if they have documents allowing them to stay in that country.

An increasing number of migrants have been crossing into Norway from Russia at the remote Arctic border post in Storskog, many on bicycles and other forms of transport because pedestrian crossings are not allowed there. Last week, 500 of a total 2,000 asylum-seekers arriving in Norway came through Storskog.

Justice Minister Anders Anundsen says immigration in Norway is "controlled and strictly regulated" and it's important that officials send "a clear signal" to people who don't need protection or have legal residence in Russia.

Anundsen said Tuesday that officials had seen several cases of people coming in who had "strong connections to Russia through dual citizenship, residence permits or visas."

3:40 p.m.

Slovenia's government says it plans to boost capacity at reception centers for migrants to up to 14,000 beds, and it again accused neighboring Croatia of not sticking to arrangements regarding the flow of migrants toward Slovenia.

Bostjan Sefic, state secretary at the interior ministry, said Tuesday that the last 24 hours had been the "most difficult, the most challenging" in Slovenia's effort to deal with the thousands of migrants reaching the country since Hungary closed its border with Croatia on Saturday and forced migrants to find new routes toward Germany and western Europe.

Sefic said Croatia was not taking migrants to previously agreed locations. He described the situation in Brezice, near the Croatian border, as "very difficult, with an enormous amount of people."

Sefic said that "despite the difficulties, we do control the situation."

Sefic said up to 140 soldiers were assisting police at the border with logistics, working under direction from the police.

3:15 p.m.

A top French administrative court is calling on the government to streamline its asylum process, which at two years takes longer than other European countries with little or no benefit.

In a finding released Tuesday, the court noted that spending on asylum seekers rose by 52 percent between 2009 and 2014 — far more than the number of those requesting asylum. It also found that 96 percent of those whose claims are rejected stay in France anyway.

The court acknowledged that the context had changed since this summer, when the government was notified of its conclusions, but said they were still relevant.

France has received far fewer migrants than Eastern Europe and Germany. Those who come congregate in the northern city of Calais, a jumping off point for Britain.

2:50 p.m.

Latvia says it plans to erect a fence along parts of its 270-kilometer (168-mile) border with Russia to prevent illegal immigration into the small Baltic country.

Interior Ministry spokeswoman Daiga Holma said Tuesday that the fence, equipped with high-tech sensors, will cover 90 kilometers of the land border in several sections. It's part of a 20 million euro ($23 million) project over the next four years to strengthen and better mark Latvia's border with its eastern neighbor.

Some 300 migrants, mostly from Vietnam but also from Iraq and Syria, have entered the Baltic country of 2 million illegally from Russia this year, more than for the full year 2014.

The fence was planned well before the migrant crisis in Europe but Holma says the project has become "a priority" because of fears that traffickers will use Latvia as a route for immigrants.

1:55 p.m.

The Dutch government is warning asylum-seekers to expect long waits and "austere" accommodations while their applications are processed.

Junior Justice Minister Klaas Dijkhoff published a letter Tuesday to be handed to all seeking asylum in the Netherlands and is intended to clarify the lengthy procedures they face. A tough warning could also possibly serve as a deterrent to other migrants.

Some 2,200 asylum seekers arrived in the Netherlands last week.

The letter says the Netherlands does not have enough regular asylum-seeker reception centers to house all the new arrivals and adds, "That is why you are receiving an austere reception, such as in sports centers or tents, where many people share the same lodgings."

Dijkhoff also warns it will take nearly six months to process an asylum application and another six months or more before a decision.

The minister says even if people are granted asylum, housing shortages mean they may have to remain in asylum-seeker accommodation or be housed in converted shipping containers or converted office blocks.

12:25

Croatia's interior minister says his country is trying to coordinate the transfer of migrants with Slovenia, which has accused its neighbor of failing to manage the relentless flow of people.

Interior Minister Ranko Ostojic told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Croatia had asked Slovenian police on Monday where they wanted to receive the migrants, but had yet to receive a reply. Ostojic said Croatia expects Slovenia every day to take in half of the migrants arriving in Croatia.

Ostokic said: "If we are receiving 10,000, then 5,000 people have to be transited to Slovenia. If the number in Croatia is 5,000, then it's 2,500, or 50 percent."

Slovenia says it cannot handle more than 2,500 per day.

Ostojic said over 204,000 migrants had reached Croatia this year, with 2,600 of them now in refugee camps and 2,500 waiting in the village of Bapska, where they arrived from Serbia, to be taken by bus to the border with Slovenia.

1:20 p.m.

Swedish police are investigating suspected arson at an asylum center in southwestern Sweden where 14 people were safely evacuated from the burning building early Tuesday.

Police spokesman Stefan Gustafsson says it's too early to say whether the fire near Munkedal was started by someone.

Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom tweeted Tuesday: "A civilized and humane country like Sweden cannot accept that accommodation for asylum-seekers is set on fire."

Tuesday's blaze was the third fire recently at centers to accommodate migrants. On Saturday, a disused school that planned to house 80 refugees was burned to the ground in southern Sweden, and on Sunday, another old school building meant for asylum accommodation near Kungsbacka, in southwestern Sweden, also burned down.

More than 150,000 asylum-seekers are estimated to arrive in Sweden this year.

12:05 p.m.

Two international agencies say over a half million asylum-seekers have reached Greece this year.

The International Organization for Migration says 27,000 entered Greece over the weekend, while at least 25 people died trying to do so in the last week. It said Tuesday some 507,000 people have crossed into Greece this year, and 291 died in their attempts.

Melissa Fleming of the U.N. refugee agency, which estimated 502,000 arrivals this year, said those recently arriving are facing worsening winter weather and the prospect that European countries could close their borders.

The vast majority of those traveling to Greece are from Syria, while most others are from Iraq and Afghanistan.

11:35 a.m.

Slovenia's government is pleading for help from its European neighbors as it struggles to cope with thousands of migrants arriving from Croatia.

A government statement on Tuesday said: "From Slovenia's perspective, European solidarity is at stake. It is delusional to expect a country with a population of 2 million to stop, regulate and resolve what much bigger member states have failed to do."

The government says Slovenia is the smallest country on the Balkan migration route, with limited capacity to control its borders and accommodate migrants.

11:15 a.m.

Hiba Kanalani, a migrant from Damascus, pressed a blanket tight around her head and body, her teeth chattering from the cold while she stood in a row of asylum-seekers waiting to cross from Serbia into Croatia.

Kanalani arrived at the crossing hours earlier Tuesday with her two sons aged 4 and 7, unprepared for the weather.

Frustrated by the delay, she said: "What is this? Where is the army? Where is police? Where are buses? We will die here."

Kanalani started the journey toward Western Europe on Oct. 8 in Turkey, hoping to reach Sweden where she has relatives. The 39-year-old woman says her husband has been working in Saudi Arabia for the past seven years, but she didn't want to join him there because of the restrictions imposed on women.

Kanalani says, "You cannot drive, you cannot do anything. You have to cover face and body. I cannot live there."

10:15 a.m.

Austrian police say that the country's main border crossings with Slovenia are quieter after the arrival Monday of more than 4,000 migrants fleeing war and hardship.

They say 3,500 came over the Spielfeld crossing and 780 at Bad Radkersburg. Police spokesman Fritz Grundnig said Tuesday morning that about 500 more migrants were expected at Bad Radkersburg over the coming hours.

The main crossing with Hungary at Nickelsdorf remains empty of migrants. That reflects their new route into Austria from Slovenia via Croatia, since Hungary closed its borders with Croatia and Serbia.

10:05 a.m.

Wrapped in blankets or standing around fires to warm up in biting wind and cold, up to 1,000 migrants are waiting to cross from Serbia to Croatia and continue their journey toward Western Europe.

Croatian police on Tuesday were letting migrants cross into the country in groups of several dozen people at a time.

Still, some migrants have spent hours out in the cold as they awaited their turn. Tensions were building, with migrants shouting "Open! Open!" to the Croatian police.

Families with small children were putting on clothes they could find, lighting small fires, curling up in tents or under blankets and sleeping bags.

The same crossing was the scene of a massive backlog Sunday and Monday when Croatia stalled the flow because Slovenia further west was taking in limited numbers.

10:00 a.m.

Slovenia says Croatia is sending thousands of migrants toward its borders "without control," ignoring requests to contain the surge.

The Slovenian government said Tuesday "the pressure of immigrants arriving from Croatia is intensifying. They send immigrants toward Slovenia without control, deliberately dispersed."

Croatia did not seem ready to slow the flow. On Tuesday morning, a train carrying more than 1,000 migrants from the town of Tovarnik and 20 buses full of migrants from the Opatovac refugee camp were headed toward the Slovenian border.

Slovenia's police said some 8,300 migrants seeking to head toward Western Europe were currently in reception centers in the small country, with thousands more arriving.

Slovenia, which has faced a surge of migrants since Hungary closed its border with Croatia on Saturday, says it can handle only 2,500 migrants a day. On Monday, 6,000 arrived.

9:15 a.m.

Soldiers and police, some on horseback, escorted some 2,000 migrants to an overcrowded reception center in Slovenia after arriving from Croatia in the middle of the night. Authorities say another thousand arrived Tuesday morning.

Wrapped in plastic raincoats and blankets, the migrants were walking toward a refugee camp in nearby Brezice. Later, they were expected to be distributed to other camps.

Croatia has been sending migrants to the border with Slovenia since Saturday, when Hungary blocked passage to migrants from Croatia with a border fence protected by razor wire, soldiers and police patrols.

Slovenia's government said 6,000 migrants, mostly women and children, arrived on Monday.
