More than 367 migrants crossed illegally into Hungary on Tuesday, the first day after the country introduced tough laws on authorised entry, and all were arrested, police said Wednesday.
Of the total, 316 will be prosecuted for damaging a barbed-wire fence set down by Hungary on its Serbian border, and the other 51 for illegally entering the country, they said. On Monday, police said a record number of 9,380 migrants had entered Hungary, most of them seeking to get to Germany.
