The online daily reported that the huge wave of refugees could have possibly arrived in Hungary following their release from the Macedonian - Greek border, where they were held for days.

Hungary’s Office of Immigration and Nationality reportedly cannot handle the huge number of migrants arriving in the country, leaving many of them unregistered at the western borders, the daily reports. Those who are not registered are given a photocopied sheet of paper by the Hungarian police, to help them find refugee camps, vs.hu added.
