German police said on Friday five people were injured when a fire broke out at a refugee shelter in the town of Heppenheim in the West German state of Hesse. Germany, which expects the influx of refugees and migrants to quadruple to about 800,000 this year, has witnessed more than 100 arson attacks on asylum shelters in recent months. "One resident who tried to rescue himself by jumping out of a window from the second floor was seriously wounded," police spokeswoman Christiane Kobus said in a statement.
The flow of migrants into Europe is endless and if the European Union does not protect its borders, tens of millions more may come, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban told public radio on Friday. "The reality is that Europe is threatened by a mass inflow of people, many tens of millions of people could come to Europe," he said.
Hungary must protect its borders and enforce European Union rules on migration also among migrants camped out at Budapest's eastern railway station, Prime Minister Viktor Orban told public radio on Friday. "We Hungarians, if we want to continue to be able to move freely within Europe, we must protect our borders and must enforce meeting EU rules at the Budapest eastern railway station as well," he said. Orban said most migrants at the station, who do not want to be registered in Hungary, want to go to Germany, but he said Hungary cannot let them through as that would risk Austria closing its border.
