More than half of Hungarians expect that the number of crimes linked to migrants to increase in Europe this year.

According to a new survey conducted by Századvég, 52 percent of people asked are concerned about the security of the country should it be overrun by migrants.

According to MTI, the survey asked 1,000 people in the aftermath of last week’s knife attack in Vienna, with 83 percent of the respondents saying that they had heard about the incident.

The figures show that 26 percent of those asked said that they expected no changes in the security situation in Europe, whereas less than 20 percent expected it to improve.

The survey also gauged the opinion of people about changes they expect in Hungary’s security situation if the opposition gets voted into power in the April 8th general election.

Results show that 62 percent expected under such a scenario an increase in crimes linked to migrants and 60 percent said migration pressure would increase on Hungary.
