    Migrants and refugees living in tents in the middle of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, are to be moved to official centres around the country by the end of May.

    The authorities say people can no longer live in abandoned military barracks because of a growing risk of disease.

    Activists say the refugees should not be moved until several decisions are made.

    Al Jazeera's Rob Matheson explains.
