Hungary: Migrants Attempt to Storm Border [video]

Video footage has been released of a group of 50 to 70 migrants who attempted to storm the Hungarian border earlier this week but were pushed back by border police.

The attempted illegal crossing took place at a checkpoint along the Serbian border at Röszke and saw one border official fire warning shots to deter the migrants from crossing.

Hungarian government Zoltán Kovács posted a video of the incident on Twitter on Wednesday morning, labelling the migrants a “violent mob”.

 

Following the incident, György Bakondi, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s Chief Security Advisor, confirmed: “A violent, organised group of migrants tried to invade Hungary at Röszke.”

 “The Serbian-Hungarian border is under severe pressure, with more than 3,400 people having tried to enter Hungary illegally in January alone,” Bakondi said.
