OPATOVAC, Croatia (Reuters) - Croatia will demand that Greece stop moving migrants from the Middle East on to the rest of Europe, Interior Minister Ranko Ostojic said on Monday.

?"The flow of migrants from Greece must be stopped. I will seek that at tomorrow's meeting of EU interior ministers," Ostojic told reporters at Opatovac camp near the eastern town of Tovarnik.

"It is absolutely unacceptable to have Greece emptying its refugee camps and sending people towards Croatia via Macedonia and Serbia," Ostojic said.
