Disturbing footage emerged today of the way migrants are being treated inside Hungary’s main refugee camp on the border with Serbia, with images showing families fed “like animals in a pen”.
The video, shot secretly by an Austrian volunteer who visited the flashpoint Roszke camp on Wednesday, shows some 150 people wildly scrambling for bags of sandwiches thrown at them by Hungarian police wearing helmets and hygiene masks in a fenced-in enclosure inside a big hall.
Women and children were caught in the chaotic scrum as hungry people frantically tried to catch the bread flying through the air.
Many migrants too far back in the crowd climbed onto the fence, waving and shouting to get the officers’ attention.
“It was like animals being fed in a pen, like Guantanamo in Europe,” said Klaus Kufner, a volunteer who was with the woman who recorded the images, referring to the notorious prison camp where the US is accused of torturing inmates.
