Hungarian Police Fire Tear Gas at New Refugees; Hungary Building a 110-Mile Fence to Block Them

Hungarian police fired tear gas at refugees trying to cross into the country from Serbia yesterday, as tensions boiled over at a reception on the country's southern border, the Sky News website reports today (August 27, 2015).

The tear gas was fired as Hungarian police struggled to deal with around 400 people in the border city of Roszke.

Hungary says it may use its army to secure the border, where it is seeing a record number of people coming into the European Union -- mainly refugees fleeing the civil war in Syria.

Hungary is currently building a 110-mile razor wire fence along its Serbian border, in an effort to keep the refugees out of the country.
