Hungarian opposition radio station Klubrádió reported Thursday night that a group of extremists attacked asylum seekers waiting for a train at Budapest’s Keleti Train Station.

Law enforcement officers showed up and intervened to stop the attack on the foreigners. The police then removed the foreigners from the scene, sending a number of them to temporary reception facilities for refugees.

Hungarian news site Hvg.hu asked the police to comment but the police asked for patience while they sort out the matter.

An extremist group known as the 64 Counties Youth Movement plans to hold a demonstration just outside the entrance of Keleti station on Baross Square this evening from 6pm. The demonstration is entitled, “Now is the time! We must defend ourselves! Hungary is not a refugee camp!”
