Police have stood down at Budapest's main railway station after a two-day standoff with refugees, sparking chaotic scenes.
Witnesses said people rushed platforms after the station's doors were opened, but officials said no trains would be running to western Europe.

Amid the confusion and an intial pause in which the station ran no services at all, some domestic trains were allowed to leave platforms headed for towns not far from the Austrian and Slovakian borders.

But reports from Hungary suggest refugees were hauled off those trains at the first stop west of Budapest, amid a hardening of the rhetoric surrounding the crisis from the Hungarian government.

  1. Very insightful comment here at this Breitbart London post by commenter FoxtrotUniformCharlieKilo_Mo!

    Oh you should have seen the Twitter outrage when I pointed out that as soon as a refugee leaves a safe haven country, they are no longer refugees, they are citizenship shopping, and have become illegal economic migrants.

    1. Outraged because it is true. We certainly have some screwed up people these days and once again, bring back dueling and we will see a major improvement.
