Accused of a heavy-handed
response to the thousands of migrants
and refugees crossing over its borders
in recent months, Hungary closed its
border with Croatia at midnight Fri-
day, saying the only legal entry into
the country would now be restricted
to official border crossings.
No longer will waves of migrants be
allowed to enter the country at any
point along the border, as they have
been in their quest to reach countries
further in the European Union.
"The legal option, the legal possibility
to come to Hungary and therefore to
the European Union through the Schen-
gen borders is open, but the green bor-
ders, the natural borders of the country,
are sealed," spokesman Zoltan Kovacs
said in announcing the closure.
Schengen borders are the official
crossings under Europe s Schengen
Agreement, which eliminated border
controls among many European Union
"In order to be able to protect the
Schengen borders and protect the Hun-
garian people, as well as Europe, we
had to make that decision and (take)
that step," Kovacs said.
Last month, Hungarian riot police
used tear gas and water cannons to
turn people back at the border with
Serbia. Hungary rushed to erect a razor-
wire barrier to keep migrants out, and
threatened anyone crossing the fence
with jail time.
Hungary s move comes as Europe
struggles to fashion a coherent response
to a historic wave of people fleeing
conflict and destruction in the Middle
East and North Africa---primarily from
Syria, where a civil war has raged for
more than four years, claimed the lives
of more than 200,000 people and left
cities in ruins.
The closure of the Roszke border
crossing between Hungary and Serbia
last month caused thousands of asylum
seekers to try to travel through Croatia
Hundreds of migrants had left the
Croatian town of Tovarnik for the Hun-
garian border in September, according
to the Croatian Interior Ministry. The
main border crossing station between
Hungary and Serbia later reopened.
Refugees from the Middle East made
the final leg of their trip through Hun-
gary on foot, walking the 4 kilometers
(2.5 miles) to the Austrian border in
the middle of the night. (CNN)
The Philippines is preparing for a
typhoon that is forecast to dump
heavy rain and cause severe flood-
President Benigno Aquino warned
that Typhoon Koppu could bring up
to 12 hours of torrential rain.
Local authorities have been urged
to evacuate residents in flood-prone
areas along the country s north-eastern
The Philippines is still reeling from
Super Typhoon Haiyan, which killed
more than 6,300 people in November
2013. Haiyan, the strongest storm ever
recorded on land, destroyed entire
Typhoon Koppu has produced winds
of up to 180km/h (115mph) and is slow
moving, meaning it could bring intense
rain over a long period of time. The
wind could be strong enough to blow
down trees, rip roofs off buildings and
threaten power supplies.
Aquino urged the estimated six mil-
lion people in the typhoon s direct path
to listen to government warnings and
be ready to evacuate their homes if
necessary. He said aid agencies had
already distributed emergency supplies
to evacuation centres.
Meanwhile, the Philippine military
in northern Luzon has been placed on
alert for disaster operations.
Typhoon Koppu, also known as
Lando, is not due to leave the Philip-
pines until Tuesday, when it will be
heading towards Taiwan. (BBC)
