Hungary to close border with Croatia from midnightOCTOBER 17, 2015EDIT Hungary warned on Friday it would close its southern border with Croatia from midnight (22:00 GMT), Reuters reported. The move comes a month after Hungary’s government shut its frontier with Serbia to hundreds of thousands of migrants and asylum seekers. A steel fence has been erected almost the length of its southern frontier.
