Description

Hungary says a razor-wire fence along its southern border with Serbia to curb the flux of refugees has been completed. The Hungarian Defense Ministry announced the completion of the first section of the border closure ahead of the August 31 deadline. However, it has reportedly failed to stop tens of thousands of refugees slipping into the country. Nearly a thousand border police currently control the border and two-thousand more are due to be in operation from the first of September. Hungary has intercepted more than 140000 refugees entering from non-EU member Serbia this year. Over the past week, some 10,000 refugees have crossed the border to travel onwards to Western European countries. Brussels has criticized the Hungarian government for building the barrier.
