Hungarian police have stopped large groups of migrants attempting to illegally enter Hungary using violent means at the Röszke border crossing with Serbia.
According to police.hu, the 40 migrants assembled on Tuesday night on the Serbian side and split into separate groups in order to climb the border fence using ladders. They pelted stones at the police officers, damaging surveillance cameras and two cars.
Csongrád-Csanád County police prevented their multiple attempts to cross the border and arrested three migrants, who said they were Syrian nationals, but could not present any personal identification documents. Criminal proceedings based on the charge of violence against an official are under way.
