Refugees are being bused from Croatia back to Hungary, through the border crossing of Beremend, and Hungarian buses have apparently been arranged to carry the refugees to unknown locations, local online daily index.hu reported today.

A video posted by index.hu shows refugees disembarking from Croatian buses in Hungary and being guided by the police to buses marked “transit line” in Hungarian. The video shows refugees boarding these Hungarian buses.

Hungarian online daily origo.hu reported that two buses left Beremend, in southern Hungary, and one is going towards Harkány in Hungary, while the other is going towards Budapest.

Aside from that report, there was no information about where refugees are being bused – or about how many refugees would be bused from Croatia.

On Tuesday, Croatia announced it would welcome refugees, but after more than 14,000 refugees arrived in the country in less than three days, Croatia closed its Serbian borders today, and said it cannot take any more refugees for the time being, according to reports.
