Several hundred migrants and refugees who tried to cross the border from Serbia to Hungary on Thursday night have been turned back by Hungarian police and moved to camps in Serbia.
The group arrived at the Kelebia-Tompa border crossing and spent the night protesting and attempting in vain to enter Hungary. Most came from Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen, Morocco and Palestine.
Greece returned to Turkey eleven migrants who did not qualify for international protection, Migration Minister Notis Mitarakis announced on social media on Friday evening.
The group includes migrants from Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Morocco, Pakistan, Somalia, and Tunisia.
"We are speeding up procedures, implementing the new law we voted recently," he said in his comment.
