Hungary border clashes: "Children were crying because of the gas, people retching"

<p>Wednesday’s scenes of chaos and clashes between migrants and Hungarian police at the border with Serbia were witnessed by Euronews correspondent Dániel Bozsik.</p> <p>He described the sequence of events.</p> <p>“A group of refugees broke through the gate, but behind it there was a police line and behind that – a water-cannon and a vehicle to disperse people” he said.</p> <p>“Forty to fifty of the refugees started throwing stones, sticks, and plastic bottles at the police. </p> <p>“Officers then started using pepper spray, continually. After a while, the police began using tear gas, throwing cartridges of it into the crowd. At this point everybody spread out. Now they are waiting further away.</p> <p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Refugee crisis: Hungary deploys teargas at Serbia border – live <a href="http://t.co/OP4NVdoyK4">http://t.co/OP4NVdoyK4</a> (Dado Ruvic/Reuters) <a href="http://t.co/Bvfk9yVEcX">pic.twitter.com/Bvfk9yVEcX</a></p>— The Guardian (@guardian) <a href="https://twitter.com/guardian/status/644149873839878144">September 16, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script></p> <p>“A pregnant woman was taken out of the crowd on a stretcher, children were crying because of the gas, people retching, becoming sick with the gas, some on their knees.</p> <p>“And the press, the Serbian police, were also affected by all of these things.”</p>
