"A man with his child as Hungarian police officers fired tear gas, pepper spray and water cannons at migrants trying to enter the country from Horgos, #Serbia. In one of the worst bursts of violence that this tense summer has seen, the officers used force on Wednesday to respond to taunts, hurled rocks and small fires set by agitated migrants at the border crossing. The crowd had been told that, as a result of new refugee laws that went into effect in Hungary on Tuesday, migrants would not be allowed across the border into the country if they had not been fingerprinted and approved. Crossing the border illegally will now be considered a major offense punishable with years in prison. International emergency relief officials said they feared the clash may lead to violence.
