150 migrants in Serbia strike against Hungary's tightening the rules for the migrants
About 150 migrants, mostly from Afghanistan and Pakistan began a hunger strike in Serbia, near the border with Hungary on Monday. It is reported by Reuters. The group of about 300 people, mostly young men, came from Belgrade and settled in a field, 100 meters away from the border last weekend.
As it was reported earlier, last month Hungary limited number of migrants, crossing Hungarian border, to 30 migrants a day. According to the protesters, they are to continue the hunger strike until they are allowed to enter Hungary.
"The food was offered, but no one wants to eat. The border remains closed, so we will stay here, they have to open the borders" - said Afghan Abdul Malek. According to the Serbian Commissariat for Refugees, about 3 thousand of migrants remain in the country waiting for the possibility to enter the EU, 800 of them are waiting in camps.
