Roszke, Hungary

A Syrian refugee father and his children walk along a country road near Roszke in southern Hungary as morning mist begins to clear, having passed by the collection point where the Hungarian authorities require refugees to take buses to registration centres. If caught by poilice patrols they will be brought back.
The collection point, with infrastructure, food and basic medical care provided by volunteers with support from UNHCR, is situated a kilometer inside the Hungarian frontier from Serbia, along an old railway line, which thousands of refugees have used to cross the border. The flow of refugees continued to grow, with delays increasing, until the Hungarian government sealed the frontier with Serbia using razor wire and a high fence, and brought in new laws on 15 September effectively halting the influx of refugees.
