Tensions are building among thousands of migrants heading north through Balkan states as their route to western Europe is stalled by new controls.

Restrictions on the flow have produced bottlenecks on Croatia's borders with Slovenia and Serbia.

Croatia had asked its northern neighbour Slovenia to accept 5,000 migrants daily, but Slovenia said it would only take half that number.
