LJUBLJANA (Reuters) - Police chiefs of Slovenia, Austria, Macedonia, Serbia and Croatia have agreed to limit migrant flow to about 580 migrants per day, Slovenian police said on Friday.

The police chiefs are “obliged to limit daily transit through Western Balkans countries to a number which would enable a control of every migrant according to Schengen rules,” the police said on Friday in a statement prepared for Reuters.
