Migrant crisis: Hungary train standoff enters second day

A tense stand-off between police and migrants on a train in Hungary is continuing into a second day. On Thursday, police let the migrants board the train in Budapest but then tried to force them off at a refugee camp to the west of the capital.

Hungarian MPs face a key vote later on whether to tighten border controls as migrants try to pass through to their preferred destination, Germany. Three other European meetings on Friday will discuss the migrant crisis. Members of the European Commission are also flying to the Greek island of Kos to examine the difficulties caused by the large numbers of refugees and migrants landing there.
