Hundreds of illegal Muslim immigrants who managed to board a train from Budapest to the border with Austria have had their journey stopped by police in Hungary, where the authorities are attempting to force them to stay in a refugee camp instead.
Some of the thousands of immigrants camped at Budapest’s Keleti train station who managed to get a place on a train bound for the border with Austria had their journey curtailed by Hungarian authorities on Thursday, who intend to send the immigrants to a camp instead of allowing them to reach their destination.
The train was the first to depart Keleti train station after two days during which police closed the station to refugees and immigrants, and left Budapest early on Thursday.
Instead of continuing to its destination of Sopron, near the Austrian border, the train stopped at the town of Bicske, an hour from Budapest, the site of one of Hungary’s four main refugee camps.
Confrontations ensued between the immigrants and police, when security forces in Hungary tried to force immigrants off the train. Immigrants shouting “no camp,” refused to leave the train. When some were forcibly removed, they lay on the tracks in protest.
Hungarian police forced journalists away from Bicske station, which, according to reports, has been declared an ‘operation zone’ by authorities.
