FYROM [***] closes border with Greece to migrants

 FYROM [***]  has closed its border with Greece to migrants, AFP reports, citing police.

"The border is closed," a senior FYROM [***]  police official told AFP.

The move has left around 600 refugees stranded in Greece.

A police spokesman in northern Greece (Macedonia) told the agency that the border has been closed since Tuesday evening.

Meanwhile, a Serbian government minister said on Wednesday that Serbia will deny refugees access to its territory unless they plan to seek asylum in Austria or Germany.

"From today...migrants will not be able to continue their travel [through Serbia] if they have not expressed intention to seek asylum on the territory of Austria or Germany," Labour Minister Aleksandar Vulin said, as quoted by state news agency Tanjug.

The interior minister of neighboring Croatia also said his country would begin asking refugees if they intend to seek asylum in Austria or Germany, according to state news agency Hina.

A new, center-right coalition government is due to take office in Croatia later this week, and is expected to clamp down on refugee flows....
