BELGRADE (Reuters) - Hungary has informed Serbia it has ordered a 30-day suspension of the Roszke-Horgos border crossing between the two countries, Serbia’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement, after clashes erupted between migrants and Hungarian police in the area.

Roszke-Horgos is one of the main border crossings between Serbia and European Union member Hungary, which sealed the frontier to migrants on Tuesday.
