Austria, Hungary, Serbia

The number of migrants trying to reach Western Europe via the Balkans has increased significantly in recent months. Hundreds are estimated to be camping on the Serbian-Hungarian border trying to get over the border fence, often with the help of people smugglers.

They are often pushed back by the Hungarian police and take months to reach Western Europe. Most of them come from Afghanistan and Syria, others from other parts of the Middle East and Asia, as well as Africa.
