16 migrants cut through border fence, face punishment under stricter rules
Budapest, September 15 (MTI) – A group of 16 migrants cut through the fence at the Serbian border near Roszke on Tuesday morning, public news channel M1 reported.
Under stricter rules effective of Tuesday, damaging the border fence qualifies as a crime punishable by prison or expulsion.
The migrants cut through first the NATO razor wire barrier and threw clothes and sleeping bags on it so they could climb through without being injured, MTI’s correspondent reported.
They next cut through the three-metre high wire fence and climbed to Hungarian territory where police detained them.
