Report: Refugees attempt to tear down fence

History

Refugees on the Serbian side of the fence at Horgos-Röszke tied pieces of clothing around the fence and are now trying to tear the fence down, Hungarian online daily atv.hu reported today.

Riot police are reportedly standing in front of the Hungarian side of the fence acting as a barricade. Index.hu said that refugees gave the Hungarian Police an ultimatum until 1 p.m., however, no one knows what is contained in that ultimatum.

Meanwhile on the Serbian side of the fence, which is technically Hungarian land, a tent camp has been set up by waiting refugees, who are hopeful that the Hungarian border will open again soon.
