Budapest, September 14 (MTI) – The last technical obstacle, a train wagon fitted with a razor wire frame to block the border, was put in place at Roszke on the Szeged-Subotica railway line on Monday evening.
From Serbia to Hungary, one can only cross the border through the official border stations.
The section of the border in question was the point most affected by illegal migrants coming from Serbia. Migrants are no longer allowed through the point where the Szeged-Subotica railway line intersects the joint border and the border fence.
Through this gap in the barrier, thousands of migrants entered the country everyday. They will now be returned to Serbia.
About half a thousand migrants are waiting at the old road border point at Roszke on Monday evening, and the Hungarian authorities are allowing small groups of 5-10 people into the country on foot through a border gate, MTI’s correspondent said, adding that the situation was calm. The migrants are kept informed about the situation by Arab police interpreters.
Buses are on standby to transport arrivals to the Austrian border.
