Slovenia suspends tougher EU border checks after traffic chaos

Slovenia said Saturday it temporarily suspended beefed-up checks on the EU’s external border hours after the new regulation — aimed at stopping suspected Islamist fighters returning from Iraq and Syria — came into force. Hundreds of cars and buses had found themselves stuck on Slovenia’s border with Croatia on Friday after the implementation of the new regulation. Bojan Tomc, a police spokesman from Novo Mesto, near the Obrezje border crossing with Croatia, told state television that since 10 pm (2000 GMT) on Friday police had “suspended checks of EU citizens and continued checking only those from third countries”.
