Budapest, September 4 (MTI) – Migrants held a noisy demonstration at Bicske railway station on Friday morning, where their train bound for western Hungary was stopped on Thursday, public news channel M1 reported.
The night was quiet at the station, the migrants spent the night on the stranded train, but in the morning they started a protest, raising banners in the air, an M1 correspondent said. Their messages stated that they wanted to go to Germany and that they did not want to go to a refugee camp.
There is heavy police presence on site.
Police said late on Thursday that there were about 500 migrants on the train and that they were uncooperative.
The migrants boarded the train at Budapest’s Keleti railway station on Thursday morning, but were told by police to get off in the town of Bicske, 35km west of Budapest, near a refugee camp. Police first placed groups of migrants on buses bound for the local reception centre in Bicske, but many of them refused. Police told the migrants through interpreters that they cannot travel onwards without valid documentation.
