Hundreds of refugees protested in front of Budapest's Eastern railway station on Wednesday, shouting "Freedom, freedom" and demanding to be let onto trains bound for Germany but the station remained closed to them.
More than 2,000 refugees, including families with children, were waiting in the square at the station in sweltering heat.
Asked if Hungary would again let refugees board trains to Germany as it did on Monday, a spokesman for the government said it would observe European Union rules.
"In the territory of the EU, illegal refugees can travel onwards only with valid documents and observing EU rules," he said. "A train ticket does not overwrite EU rules."Last Mod: 02 Eylül 2015, 11:54
