The migrants then ran back towards the border fence and climbed over to Serbia. Five border violators were arrested, according to the Hungarian authorities. The returned migrants made serious accusations against the Hungarian authorities. "My friends tried to cross the border, but the Hungarian police reacted very badly to it, beating them and breaking their mobile phones," said a Moroccan who was the translator, reported Reuters news agency.

According to the Magyar Hang news portal, Afghan traffickers have offered migrants to take them to the border for a low price. According to Reuters, there are currently more than 6,000 migrants in Serbian camps, many of whom want to travel further west via Hungary.
