Hungary police chief says no more buses for migrants

Hungary’s police chief said Saturday that buses were no longer being provided to transfer migrants to the Austrian border, calling the measure that brought thousands overnight a “one-off”.

“The provision of buses towards Austria was a one-off and there will be no more vehicles sent to refugees walking along the road” towards Vienna, Karoly Papp told a news conference, quoted by state news agency MTI.

Overnight and on Saturday morning around 90 buses brought several thousand migrants to Hungary’s western border. Some 6,500 had crossed into Austria by early afternoon.
