Refugee surge leaves Slovenia scrambling for solutions

Ljubljana, 20 October - Slovenia was stretched to its limits Tuesday as the inflow of refugees from Croatia persisted. Although the authorities insist the situation is under control, there were incidents reported in several refugee centres. Under pressure to keep the situation in check, the government decided to give army limited police powers to protect the border.
