UN Secretary General shocked over Hungary migrant clashes
Sept.17, Geneva: Unite Nation Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has said he is shocked after Hungarian police fired tear gas and water cannon at protesting refugees who are demanding entry from Serbia.
Secretary General also said that such treatment of asylum seekers was unacceptable.
Hungarian police have said that the move on Wednesday came after the crowd on the Serbian side became aggressive and threw stones, bottles and sticks at police on the Hungarian side and crossed the barrier at the border.
Hundreds of migrants were involved in the clashes at the border between Hungary and Serbia on Wednesday, trying to break through a razor-wire fence. Many of the refugees want to reach Germany.
Police said that at least 20 police officers were injured as migrants tried to break through a gate. At least two migrants were also injured, officials said that
More than 200,000 people have already crossed into Hungary this year to enter the EU's Schengen zone, which normally allows people to travel between member countries without restrictions.
