(ANSA) - BELGRADE - Since the beginning of the year, more than 61,000 migrants arrived in Serbia and in recent times the Balkan country recorded over a thousand arrivals per day. This news was reported by Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic, according to whom the country has seen a gradual but steady increase in the flow of migrants, who travel along the so-called 'Balkan route'.

Most of them come from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, through Turkey, Greece and Macedonia, and usually reach Serbia; they travel to Hungary and then move to northern European countries. The authorities in Budapest, in order to stem the constant flow of illegal immigrants, are building a metal 4-metre high fence along the southern border with Serbia, 175 km long. (ANSA).
