Hungarian online daily magyarnarancs.hu reported that some refugees were seen being collected from the nearby streets and from internet cafés as well. The portal reported that a refugee being escorted into a vehicle asked where he was being taken, and received an answer from a police officer that he is being taken to Debrecen.
Magyarnarancs.hu reports that refugees do not know where they are being taken and that families are being torn apart. Citing an employee of German newspaper Die Tagaszeitung, Martin Kaul’s Twitter post, index.hu reported that a train from Budapest’s Nyugati Railway Station set off to Debrecen with “some refugees” on board.
