PM Tells Refugees Not to Come Prime Minister Viktor Orban has told refugees not to come to Hungary. He says that he cannot guarantee they’ll be accepted. Thousands of asylum seekers camped outside a railway station in Budapest for two days after police blocked them from boarding on trains. Earlier on Thursday, the station reopened and resumed domestic travel. But Hungarian officials announced that they had suspended services to western Europe ‘‘indefinitely”. On Thursday morning, police stopped a train headed to a town near the Austrian border. They then took the refugees off the train and moved them to a processing camp. Soldier Accused of Assaulting a Minor The UN says a French soldier in the Central African Republic has been accused of sexually assaulting a minor. The French military says it’s begun investigating into the matter. A UN report also says that 18 soldiers from three different countries were accused of sexually assaulting children in the CAR between December 2013 and June 2014. President Resigns President Otto Perez Molina has resigned. A judge ordered Perez’s detention earlier on Thursday. And Congress voted to strip his immunity from prosecution on Wednesday. Prosecutors and investigators from a UN anti-graft commission accuse him of heading a customs bribery scheme.. He’s denied being involved in the scandal. Guatemala’s presidential elections are scheduled for Sunday. And until then, vice president Alejandro Maldonado is expected to take office. Refugee’s Image Goes Viral Pictures of a dead refugee child who washed up on a beach in Turkey have gone viral. It’s believed he died when a boat carrying 16 asylum seekers from Syria sank on its way to Greece on Wednesday. The International Organization for Migration says 350 thousand asylum seekers have crossed the Mediterranean to enter Europe this year. And the UN says 25 hundred of them died at sea. In just a little over four years, the war in Syria has killed 250 thousand people and displaced 9.5 million others.
