Hungary’s Prime Minister is on the warpath against refugees. Most asylum seekers are turned away at the country’s borders, and those already in Hungary are to be confined to container settlements.
Hungarian lawmakers have approved a controversial measure to detain all asylum-seekers in camps along the country's southern border. Human rights groups warn that the law flouts key EU principles.
