Hungary faces ‘rebellion’ by migrants, says Viktor Orban

Viktor Orban, the Hungarian prime minister, has denounced the behaviour of migrants and promised to enforce the country’s tough new immigration laws, allowing the arrest of anyone found crossing the border illegally from next Tuesday.

He said Hungary faced a “rebellion” at the hands of new arrivals who have “failed to cooperate” and “seized” the country’s railway stations.

The governments of Slovakia, Poland and the Czech Republic have all joined Hungary in rejecting the European Commission’s plan for 23 member states in the Schengen area to accept quotas of refugees.
