Budapest (MTI) – Police on Friday found the body of a migrant who earlier this week attempted to cross into Hungary by swimming up a dead branch of the Tisza river.

Police patrolling the section of the Tisza on the Hungarian-Serbian border noticed on Wednesday two migrants swimming up one of the river’s dead branches, a spokesman for the Csongrád county police department said.

The migrants quickly turned back when they became aware of the police presence. Police only saw one of them reach the Vojvodina shore and immediately alerted Serbian authorities of the missing migrant who then started searching for him.

  1. I think that the world needs to address this issue and make it very plain that illegal migrants are not welcome in any of their countries. What is so wrong with actually fighting for your own country? It’s only going to be a matter of time before those refugee camps throughout Europe will become Death Camps. I hope I am not the only person in this world that sees this future happening to these people.

  2. Juliana, you are not on your own. I belive they should all be sent back, and the one’s trying to cross the borders should be shot.
