Refugees in Budapest
This morning it seems from media reports that the Hungarian police has given up trying to register the crowds of refugees coming through the broder with Serbia: "Have something to eat and drink, then go where you like " is what migrants arriving in Hungary are told now.
The situation in Hungary is further complicated by the fact that the country's minsiter for defense unexpectedly stepped down yesterday. There ara anumber of speculations as for the reason of Mr Csaba Hende's quitting fromt he most, some soruces suggest that the leaders of the Hungarian army oppose a number of recent decisions (the legal anomalies about sending troops to the border, being urged with the bulding the fence, etc.)
Hundreds of refugees keep coming through the border despite the fact that they are likely to have to spend at least one night outdoors in the now fairly cold night. Hungarians who have been supporting, helping the refugees in the past two months, offering donations, and their time are starting to focus on the area directly by the border. Daily transportation of clothes, campiong equipmenst, quilts is being organized from Budapest to Röszke. (To see what the situation is like there, please click here.)
This afternoon may bring some more information :Vincent Cochetel, UNHCR's Director of the Bureau for Europe is scheduled to give a press conference in Budapest.
