Officials in Germany, Austria and Hungary are now allowing thousands of refugees through their borders. This comes after Hungarian police initially blocked trains carrying the refugees.
"These are families around us right now that have all fled the wars in Syria making this horrific journey with their children. They're not entirely 100% sure where this train is going to end up," CNN reporter Arwa Damon said while on a train with the refugees.
After a standoff with Hungarian police near the country's capital, the refugees began walking toward the Austrian border. After public outcry, Hungarian officials sent buses to carry the refugees the rest of the way.
