Slovenia has introduced new border restrictions for migrants as part of efforts to close the Balkans route from Greece to Western Europe.

In reaction, Serbia said it would close its borders with Macedonia and Bulgaria to those without valid documents.

Future of the EU's passport-free Schengen Zone is already in doubt.
