(ANSA) - BELGRADE, 28 AGO - Incident in the night on the border between Serbia and Hungary, where a group of migrants tried to cross the border illegally. The Belgrade-based media reported that stones were thrown at the Hungarian border guards, who responded with tear gas, pushing back the refugees. The authorities did not report any injury. At the same time, in the last few hours, local media added, the Hungarian police stopped more than 300 irregular migrants who had managed to cross the border from Serbia. After the dramatic migration crisis of 2015, the influx of refugees along the so-called Balkan route has never stopped, and thousands coming mainly from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Syria, Iraq, Iran continue to cross the countries in the Balkan region trying to reach Western Europe.

The usual route is the one that leads from Turkey to Slovenia, passing through Greece. Bulgaria, Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Croatia. (ANSA).
