Zagreb - Croatian police say some 13 300 migrants have entered the country from Serbia since the first groups started arriving more than two days ago.

Croatia on Friday closed all border crossings with Serbia except one in an effort to control the flow which has strained authorities.

Despite the move, migrants and refugees fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and Asia have been coming into Croatia through the corn fields. Most of them want to move on toward Germany or the Scandinavian countries.

The migrants have turned to Croatia for a corridor to Western Europe after Hungary used force to push them away from its territory.
