Refugees Heading To Hungary Will Soon Face Another Border Block
Hungary plans to increase security along the Serbian border to keep out more refugees.By Melissa Prax | August 26, 2016
A fence at the Hungarian border has been pretty effective at blocking refugees from entering. Now the country plans to build a second one.
Last year, 400,000 refugees entered Europe through Hungary. But Hungary tightened its border and built a more-than-100-mile fence alongside Serbia. Official data says only 18,000 have entered through Hungary in 2016.
Hungarian officials later added on to that fence to cover the Hungary-Croatia border.
