Slovenia sends army to help manage migrant flow on border

0

LJUBLJANA: The Slovenian parliament late Monday authorized the army to help police manage the flow of migrants crossing the Croatian border into Europe’s Schengen passport-free zone, which has been rocked by the refugee crisis. The bill sailed through, approved by 69 votes against five in the 90-seat parliament. Prime Minister Miro Cerar told journalists ahead of the vote that it was “a natural move under the circumstances” given the relentless influx, adding: “It doesn’t (authorize the army to take) military action, but it is to provide assistance to the police in border-guarding tasks.”
