“Migrants waited after being detained by Hungarian police after crossing the Serbia-Hungary border outside Asotthalom, #Hungary on Sunday. A wave of tens of thousands of migrants and refugees — many fleeing wars in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan — has worked its way up the length of the Balkans. The mass of people has overwhelmed the authorities, from the tiny Greek island of Kos to impoverished Macedonia, which declared a state of emergency last week. Hungarian officials thought a fence would help slow the tide. But it may actually be spurring them on, accelerating their race to get north before the country’s border with Serbia — almost 109 miles long — is cordoned off.
