Refugee Arrests Soar as Hungary Clamps Down on Border ControlsThe first string of refugees have been arrested on the Hungarian border since new protection orders were put in place to attempt to stem the flow of refugees. Three men appeared to be the first arrested in Roszke, southern Hungary, in the early hours of Tuesday after they were seen illegally crossing from Serbia. Gyorgy Bakondi, homeland security adviser to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, told the AP that the detainees crossed the border by damaging the fence and will be charged with committing offenses under the new laws regarding border restrictions.
