Hungarian police order state of emergency in four counties

In response to Germany’s decision to reestablish border controls in order to stem the inflow of refugees, the Hungarian government has declared a state of emergency in the southern Hungarian counties of Bács-Kiskun, Békés and Csongrád, as well as in Pest county.

In a statement issued by the Communication Service of the Directorate of Border Defense and Law Enforcement late Sunday night, the decision to order a state of emergency in the four counties was promoted by Germany’s decision to temporarily suspend the Schengen agreement and close its borders to tens of thousands of refugees.

The decision affects the police magistrates of the four counties as well as those of the national stand-by police.
