ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION STORY: Scuffles broke out on Croatia's border on Friday (September 18) as migrants waited for tickets at a bus and train station in the town of Beli Manastir. It was unclear where most of them were heading. One Syrian man told Reuters he wanted to go Zagreb, the Croatian capital, and then into Slovenia, which -- like Hungary -- is part of the European Union's Schengen zone of passport-free travel. There were a further 100-200 migrants waiting in a nearby derelict building and in tents. Police said close to 500 migrants had been detained after crossing into the south of Hungary from Croatia on Thursday.
