By Tom Miles and Krisztina Than GENEVA/BUDAPEST (Reuters) - The United Nations' refugee chief called on Friday for Europe to mobilize its "full force" in tackling its migrant crisis, just as Hungary's right-wing leader told Europeans they risk becoming a minority on their own continent. Declaring that the European Union faces a "defining moment", the head of the U.N. refugee agency Antonio Guterres said a divided bloc would benefit only smugglers and people traffickers. Hundreds of thousands of people trying to escape conflict and poverty are making the dangerous and arduous journey by sea and land, heading towards wealthy northern European countries such as Germany in the hope of finding safety and a new life.
