16 Sep, 2015

After a tense stand-off with riot police, a group of migrants try to break through the newly-sealed border barrier to try to enter Hungary. Some migrants throw missiles, including stones and water bottles at the police who then retaliate by firing tear gas and water cannon. Several people have received medical treatment from the ambulance service at the scene of the clashes. Most are suffering from the effects of tear gas but one young man had a bloody leg. Migrant:

We fled wars and violence and did not expect such brutality and inhumane treatment.
