Migrants cling onto hope at fenced off Hungary-Serbia border

<p>Hungary may have put up a razor wire fence along its border with Serbia, but it has not deterred some migrants. </p> <p>Around 150 people remain around Horgos, on the Serbian side, in the hope they will cross over one day soon.</p> <p>The area was the scene of clashes on Wednesday. Police used tear gas and and water cannons on hundreds of people who broke through the fence. </p> <p>“We (want to) go to Hungary, but Hungary closed the door,” said an Iraqi man. </p> <p>A Pakistani man, who’s been living in Turkey, added: “I’m waiting. More waiting and more waiting. (When the) gate (is) open, (I will) go to Hungary, after Germany.”</p> <p>Speaking from Horgos, euronews reporter Andrea Hajagos said: “Few people have stayed here at the Serbian-Hungarian border. But those here are waiting, sleeping in their tens – hoping that sooner or later they will be able to enter Hungary.”</p>
