2 SEPTEMBER 2015 - EUROPE'S MIGRANT CRISIS : SCENES OF CHAOS AND DEVASTATION IN HUNGARY AUSTRIA MACEDONIA GREECE TURKEY

Several parts of Europe saw chaotic scenes Wednesday as refugees fleeing violence in the Middle East and Africa overwhelmed several cities and border regions. Budapest, the Hungary-Serbia border, a Turkish resort town, Vienna and the Greece-Macedonia border all saw various clashes or scenes of devastation related to the refugee crisis. In Hungary, hundreds of frustrated refugees demanding passage to Germany jostled with riot police beside Budapest's main international train station Wednesday as Hungary spent a second day trying to keep thousands of asylum seekers from spilling deeper into Europe. Scores of officers pushed back the crowd, which shouted in Arabic and English to be permitted to march around the Keleti train station, which has become the latest focal point for European tensions over an unrelenting flow of refugees from the Middle East, Asia and Africa. Passions also flared on Hungary's border with Serbia as right-wing nationalist protesters marched to the location where refugees use a train track to walk into the country. Police formed protective circles around frightened refugees as the demonstrators from the hard-line Jobbik party screamed abuse at them. The 28-nation European Union has been at odds for months on how to deal with the influx of more than 332,000 refugees this year. Such front-line nations as Greece, Italy and Hungary have pleaded for more help, while Germany, which is expecting to receive an EU-leading 800,000 asylum seekers this year, has appealed for EU partners to bear more of the load.
