Hungary shuts main border crossing with Serbia

HORGOS, Serbia (AP) – Serbia’s foreign ministry says Hungary has closed traffic over the main border crossing between the two countries.

A statement Wednesday said the Horgos crossing will remain “temporarily, partially closed for thirty days.” It adds that Hungary said the situation at the border crossing “is endangering public security in Hungary.”

Hundreds of people trying to reach the European Union have been trapped in the border area after Hungary closed its border with Serbia on Tuesday to stem the influx. Hungarian police on Wednesday used tear gas, pepper spray and water cannons against crowds trying to push through a border fence.
