Chaotic pictures from Hungarian refugee centre go viral

“Like Guantanamo in Europe” is just one reaction to the shocking pictures that have gone around the world of this refugee centre in Hungary. They were filmed secretly by an Austrian volunteer.

It appears to lend some credence to accusations that the Hungarian authorities are doing little to help the people who are, for the moment, stranded on their territory: Instead of an orderly distribution of food and water, officials seem unable or unwilling to prevent a free-for-all erupting in front of them, and bags of food are thrown over barriers into the crowd.

The Hungarian authorities have announced an immediate inquiry, and Prime Minister Viktor Orban is making a speech in reaction.
