Transcript for Hungary Declares State of Emergency, Closes Borders to Refugees
Now overseas to the humanitarian crisis in Europe. The worst since world war ii. Hundreds of thousands fleeing war and devastation and this morning Hungary declaring a state of emergency watch becoming the latest country to close its borders. ABC's terry Moran is in Serbia on the border with Hungary. Good morning, terry. Reporter: Good morning, robin. This is the new reality at the hundred gatherian border. Thousands waiting overnight but the gate is closed and look behind me there, Hungarian police in riot gear now authorized to use rubber bullets against anyone who tries to cross. Overnight a box car bristling with razor wire sealed the final gap in the border fence. The last to come across were herded into buses driven away in the darkness destination, unknown. And this morning, the first arrests. Across Europe governments are scrambling, Germany, Austria, Netherlands and Slovakia have joined them with restrictions. But that is no solution for them. This morning we met Khalid and aid, 12-year-old twins who have been on the road for a month but still full of fun. They tell me they'll never forget their terrifying boat journey to Greece. You were afraid you were going to die in that boat. Or drown. Reporter: And now what? They're telling you should go from here to bosnia and Croatia and Italy and on? No, we can't go from -- we can't go from here to Serbia -- from Serbia to bosnia. Reporter: Another 500 miles and more from here. European leaders have failed once again to agree on a plan to handle this crisis but still the people keep coming.
