Thousands trapped in Budapest


No information. No facilities. Images from last night (September 2) show how migrants and refugees have spent their last two days and nights in central Budapest.

The frustration at not being allowed to travel was obvious.

Tired and hungry after long and dangerous journeys with not enough food to go around.

“The police is very hard with us, they are very hard with us, with the Syrian people especially,” said Aref. “I am from Syria, I am professor at university but I think I am not human for them.”

“Nobody is going to help us,” said Mohammed. “They are total liars. They talk about human rights, they talk about international laws. But what kind of international laws and human rights (do) they have?”

Families who had been told they would be allowed to travel were denied access to the railway station.

Hungarian authorities left them camped in the summer heat.
